  • Vestibular Nerve Injury – Resulting from Sudden Forward Acceleration


    Demonstrates the mechanism of injury — as the brain stem and skull move in different directions during a violent impact|stretch injuries to the vestibular nerve can occur. This type of injury is especially significant when supporting arguments of brain injuries occurring as a result of traumatic forces to the head (without an impact) because if forces were significant enough to damage the vestibular nerve|the forces were also likely sufficient to cause shear or traumatic axonal injury.
