Sandia, UNM research shows brain injury may occur within one millisecondafter head hits car windshield. Research by
Sandia engineer Paul Taylor of Sandia’s Multiscale Computational Materials Methods Dept. 1435 and Corey Ford, neurologist at University of New Mexico’s Department of Neurology and MIND Imaging Center, showed that brain injury may occur within one millisecond after a human head is thrust into a windshield as a result of a car accident.
This happens prior to any overall motion of the head following impact with the windshield and is a new concept to consider for doctors interested in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Paul says that modeling brain injury is a far more humane way to study scenarios leading to TBI than the traditional trial-and-error approach using laboratory animals.


Sandia is a government-owned/contractor operated (GOCO) facility. Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin company, manages Sandia for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration. We seek collaborative partnerships on emerging technologies that support our mission.“Securing a Peaceful and Free World Through Technology”
