    • Head-to-nerve analysis of electromechanical impairments of diffuse axonal injury 

      Cinelli, Ilaria; Destrade, Michel; McHugh, Peter; Trotta, Antonia; Gilchrist, Michael; Duffy, Maeve (Springer, 2018-11-14)
      The aim was to investigate mechanical and functional failure of diffuse axonal injury (DAI) in nerve bundles following frontal head impacts, by finite element simulations. Anatomical changes following traumatic brain injury ...
    • Poynting effect of brain matter in torsion 

      Balbi, Valentina; Trotta, Antonia; Destrade, Michel; Annaidh, Aisling Ni (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019-06-13)
      We investigate experimentally and model theoretically the mechanical behaviour of brain matter in torsion. Using a strain-controlled rheometer, we perform torsion tests on fresh porcine brain samples. We quantify the torque ...
