Excerpt from Annual Report of Program Activities, National Institutes of Health, 1967-1968, Vol. 2: National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Blindness

The formidable task of constructing a physical model of the head in order to study various forces of injury and their effect upon the head has begun. Three contractors have undertaken the project by determination of the physi cal properties of the tissues of the head. This unique research, combining the Sophisticated techniques of biology and engineering will continue for several years, culminating in the development, construction, and experimental loading of physical and mathematical models. This program is under continual review of an expert committee.

The selection, location and contact of a large population of veterans who sustained head injuries in the Korean campaign has been completed. A matched control population has also been selected. This project has been accomplished in collaboration with the National Research Council Follow-up Agency and appropriate agencies of the Department of Defense. Concise work ups of medical information on these veterans has been completed. From this information, the American National Red Cross, Service to Military Families, is conducting a field contact study. This population provides an imposing resource for clinical studies of the late effects of head injury.
