Neural tissue biomechanics: biomechanics and models of structural neurological disorders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Research interests in biomechanical modeling of the intracranial system and structural neurological disorders have increased in the last two decades. The lack of clarity on the physiology of the intracranial system has resulted in some disparities in these models. The aim of this chapter is to provide a thorough physiological background of the intracranial system, the mechanics of several types of structural neurological disorders that arise when the system is disturbed and outline the benefits in modeling these disorders. This chapter concludes by discussing some of the impending issues that need to be resolved in order to improve our understanding of a diseased intracranial system using computational models.
