Dr. Smith approached Joe Fisher, MD, anesthesiology professor at the University of Toronto, anesthesiologist at University Health Network and the chief science officer at Thornhill Research Inc., in Toronto, about ways to reduce the ability of the brain to slosh inside the skull.

...
Then Dr. Fisher realized they could achieve the same effect by decreasing the blood outflow from the cranium, which would reduce compliance but not increase intracranial pressure. Based on his work in neuroanesthesia and lumbar puncture procedures, Dr. Fisher knew firsthand about the effect of compression of internal jugular veins on CSF pressure. "During those procedures, I'd ask my nurse to put a hand under the drapes and press on the patient's neck," he said.
...
In addition, the research team had hoped for a 5% to 10% reduction in damage related to the collar, but instead found an 85% reduction, Dr. Fisher said. They published the findings in Neurosurgery (2012;70:740-746). A second study in the Journal of Neurosurgery (2012;117:1110-1118) reexamined and restained the samples for other biomarkers of brain injury. This resulted in a 48% to 59% reduction in degenerative neurons and a 36% to 45% decrease in reactive astrocytes. Furthermore, they saw a 44% to 65% reduction in microglial activation. "We couldn't believe it," Dr. Fisher said.
