Brain Anatomy

Brain anatomy visualized and described simply so it is easy to understand in this video demonstrating Acceleration / Deceleration (coup-contrecoup) injury.  See how diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is caused with low speed and high speed injuries.

This animation by Medivisuals explains diffuse axonal injury and neuron “suicide and murder.” See how a TBI can go undetected because symptoms may not be immediately observable and areas of injury and cell death can be too small for traditional CT & MRI to detect. These symptoms may progressively worsen as cell death continues, resulting in devastating brain injuries that do not fully develop until weeks or months after the initial incident.
