View Full Version : modeling the brain..

01-08-2004, 07:12 AM
My research focuses on model-updated image-guided neurosurgery. I am
currently trying to develop a poro-viscoelastic FE model of the brain. Though
i have found papers that use poroelastic models(eg.,Miga et al (1), Paulsen et
al (2)) and viscoelastic models (Miller et al (3)) separately to model brain
deformation during neurosurgery, i am yet to come across a paper/resource that
talks about a poro-viscoelastic model. Can someone point me to resources that
talk about the same.
Thanks in advance for your replies,
