Mechanics of the brain

Co-Chairs:

Songbai Ji, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Yuan Feng, Shanghai Jiao Tong University

 

Summary:

Mechanics of the brain have been extensively studied, but remain poorly understood or characterized. This session will invite top researchers in the field to present their latest findings regarding the mechanics of the brain from micro to macro scales, from theoretical to experimental, and from quasi-static to high-rate loading conditions. It will provide a forum for participants to discuss how these diverse data can be unified to form the foundation for computational modeling of the brain in order to enhance the understanding of brain mechanics.
