Abstract

Physical and mathematical analysis of the intracranial cavity was started by Hakim et al. (1986) and Marmarou et al. (1975). However, in these studies, the intracranial cavity is regarded as only one component. In 1988, Rekate et al. (1988) reported a 6 compartment analysis of the intracranial cavity.
