DISCUSSION ON "ROTATION - TRANSLATION DUALITY IN HEAD TRAUMA? PERCEPTIVE AND OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE"

The study on "rotation translation duality in head trauma, Perceptive and objective evidence" (see IRRD 881074) offers interesting paths to pursue in order to examine the role of brain-skull decoupling. Possible paths include the following: (1) To conduct detailed set of experimental studies which will document the appearance of brain-skull displacement and response to a forced mechanical excitation for frequencies both below and above the transition point for brain-skull decoupling; (2) to relate the magnitude of brain-skull displacement to the appearance of specific brain injuries such as tearing of parasagittal bridging veins and cerebral contusions; (3) to further clarify the human response to the forced vibratory oscillation used in this study; and (4) to offer the results from the earlier experiments to experimental and computational biomechanicians interested in advancing new models for studing brain injury. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 881069.
