Abstract: During the design and simulation process of MEMS medical devices used in neurosurgery, there is a need to build a brain model with detailed anatomy and physical properties incorporated as a platform to conduct numerical analysis. This paper presents a study on constructing a brain model for simulation of medical device interventions during neurosurgery. A brain atlas was utilized to develop a detailed model consisting of multiple structures. Two types of atlas model were generated employing different mesh types and biomechanical properties suited for various applications. The developed model was able to capture the detailed anatomy of the brain and reflect the application-dependant biomechanical behaviour based on material modelling of brain tissue under surgical intervention. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd.
