For my STEAM project, I discussed the effects of traumatic brain injuries as this expands on objective of the nervous system. I displayed how the brain injury occurs and the effects on the brain activity. Since I love soccer and millions of traumatic injuries occur from this sport, I portrayed my project through a soccer player getting a brain injury from hitting the ball on his head and colliding with another player in the process. The painting shows the deacceleration and acceleration of the brain that causes the damage to the brain. I also painted the differentiation in the brain activities of a normal brain, a mild traumatic brain injury(concussion), and a severe traumatic brain injury. The final painting below demonstrates the axonal injury to a severe traumatic brain injury.
That is all!
