This medical exhibit shows how a traumatic brain injury occurs causing an axonal and shear injury. Coup and contra-coup action causes severe and permanent brain damage when the brain and skull collide during a rear impact. The first inset shows an enlarged section of the brain matter illustrating how the shearing force of the brain movement causes axon damage. The second inset shows a more in-depth view of how an axon is injured resulting in its death.
