Description

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is inherently heterogeneous with a complex underlying pathophysiology. Over the past decades many attempts have been undertaken to develop novel and innovative ways to mimic human aspects of TBI in rodents. This presentation will provide a brief overview of translationally relevant rodent TBI models with special emphasis on mild-to-moderate injuries and associated pathology.

Rodent Traumatic Brain Injury as a Model for Human Traumatic Axonal Damage and Neurodegeneration

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is inherently heterogeneous with a complex underlying pathophysiology. Over the past decades many attempts have been undertaken to develop novel and innovative ways to mimic human aspects of TBI in rodents. This presentation will provide a brief overview of translationally relevant rodent TBI models with special emphasis on mild-to-moderate injuries and associated pathology.
