Methodological Aspects of an Experimental Research on Cerebral Tolerance on the Basis of Boxers' Training Fights 872195

In order to obtain data about human head tolerance, the APR Laboratory of Biomechanics has developed a specific methodology for volunteer boxers.
These ones are used because they expose themselves, in their normal body activities, to direct head impacts similar in nature to those experienced by vehicle occupants under crash conditions.
This paper describes the specific experimental technique that permits association of the severity of the blows, measured in terms of physical parameters, to corresponding physiological effects, measured in medical terms.
