Toro-Ibacache, V., Fitton, L. C., Fagan, M. J., & O'Higgins, P. (2016). Validity and sensitivity of a human cranial finite element model: Implications for comparative studies of biting performance. Journal of anatomy, 228(1), 70-84 . https://doi.org/10.1111/joa.12384

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a modelling technique increasingly used in anatomical studies investigating skeletal form and function. In the case of the cranium this approach has been applied to both living and fossil taxa to (for example) investi...
