Microfluidic Device and System for Analyzing Shear Forces in Blast-Induced Traumatic Brain Injury

19:00 EST 29 Nov 2015 | NIH

The present invention is a device for simulating the biological effects of pressure waves resulting from explosions on cells of the central nervous system. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when neural tissue is subjected to shear forces, such as those induced by the propagation of shockwaves in the brain. The resulting cellular damage can lead to long-term cognitive impairment.
