Abstract

The response of spinal cord tissue to mechanical loadings is not well understood. In this study, isolated fresh cervical spinal cord samples were obtained from cadavers at autopsy and tested in uniaxial tension at moderate strain rates. Stress relaxation experiments were performed with an applied strain rate and peak strain in the physiological range, similar to those seen in the spinal cord during voluntary motion. The spinal cord samples exhibited a nonlinear stress-strain response with increasing strain increasing the tangent modulus. In addition, significant relaxation was observed over 1 min. A quasilinear viscoelastic model was developed to describe the behavior of the spinal cord tissue and was found to describe the material behavior adequately. The data also were fitted to both hyperelastic and viscoelastic fluid models for comparison with other data in the literature.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 November 2017.
All research outputs
#3,490,517
of 12,196,902 outputs
Outputs from Annals of Biomedical Engineering
#308
of 1,284 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#88,620
of 260,767 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Annals of Biomedical Engineering
#7
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,196,902 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,284 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.2. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 260,767 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its contemporaries.
