This subject examines the mechanics of human tissue injury which is important in situations like a car crash or a workplace injury. After a review of the gross anatomy of the head and neck, the modes by which the function of the brain and spine can be interrupted by injury are explained and the frontiers for research are defined.
Students will become familiar with methods and experiments to determine criteria for life threatening injury to the head and neck, including historical notes on hanging technique and brain function maps from war time gunshot wounds. The course will focus on examining statistical approaches that can cope with large uncertainties in seemingly random data.
Having completed this subject the student is expected to be able to:
