Abstract:

The major objective of this research effort was to create new sensing technologies and perform preliminary studies prior to rapid transition to testing in blast TBI models. This project proposed to use miniaturized, state-of-the-art pressuretemperature sensors engineered at LLNL to measure the immediate increases in ICP combined with longer-term measurements of biological ICP and intracranial temperature. The experience gathered from this seed proposal provided valuable data on sensor placement, long-term brain tissue responses to implanted sensors, and sensor capability of dual measurement of biologic ICP and impact pressure transients that will be directly applicable to subsequent transition into blast TBI animal models.
