Episode 52: Holla Back at Brain Biomechanics | Maria Holland

In this episode we talk with Maria Holland, Assistant Professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame. We talked about the implications of different properties of the brain and how we can apply biomechanics to study brain growth such as changes in folding and cortical thickness.
