Geometry, skull growth and brain mechanics

Professor Alain Goriely is Professor of Mathematical modelling at Oxford University's Mathematical Institute and founder of the International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab (IBMTL). He talks to ScienceBlog about the key findings from his recently published work 'Dimensional, Geometrical and Physical Constraints in Skull Growth', and how geometry and mathematical modelling can help us to understand the mechanics of the brain.
