Female Anterior Coup – Contrecoup Injury


This exhibit shows the mechanism of a coup – contrecoup brain injury. The force of an impact causes the head to suddenly hyperextend right, while the brain shifts to the left and strikes the skull interior (coup injury). The head then recoils to the left and stops sharply, causing the brain to shift right and strike the opposite skull interior (contrecoup injury).
