    Researchers Use Eggs To Model Concussion and to Better Understand Sudden Impact Brain Injuries

    Picked up by the American Institute of Physics, LiveScience.com, Phys.org, the DailyMail and other sites, novel research by Dr. Qianhong Wu and PhD student Ji Lang used an egg yolk to shed light on what specifically happens to the brain of a patient who experiences traumatic brain injury. Their findings provide a new perspective on the response of a membrane-bound soft object to sudden external impacts, helping to better understand flow physics of head injury.
