Program description: The classical TBI models that have been used in TBI research are mostly rodent models generated over 20 years ago. These models including fluid percussive injury, controlled cortical impact, weight drop model etc. resemble some or partial neuropathological development of TBI seen in clinic. In recent years, several new models have emerged to represent the increasing clinical cases of mild repetitive injury, blast injury for better clinic translation. The selection of a model system is critical for achieving research goals. This session will introduce recently developed new rodent TBI models and discuss their relevance for clinical translations.
