Bruce Stern over at the Traumatic Brain Injury Law Blog notes that a team of doctors at Washington University in St. Louis has developed a new technique for Traumatic Brain Injury imaging.

Bruce summarizes that the test

shows just what the brain does when the skull accelerates. Test subjects heads were placed in the soft netting. They were then asked to raise and lower their heads about an inch inside an MRI machine. After subjects repeated this motion several times, the MRI pieced together a complete movie of the brain’s response to these motions.
