Dr. Kurt's PRL Paper on Brain Impact Dynamics featured in Science Magazine!
Dr. Kurt's paper "Mechanistic Insights into Human Brain Impact Dynamics through Modal Analysis", recently published on Physical Review Letters, featured in Science Magazine. The study analyzed data on 189 head collisions acquired during football games (thanks to special mouth guards equipped with accelerometers and gyroscopes) and simulated how the brain responded mechanically to each hit. This allowed to identify the most important frequencies of brain oscillations during th
