Info wanted on biomechanics and neural processes

    Does anyone out there know of references for experimental or
theoretical work done on the effects of stress and strain on neuronal
processes.  I mean stress and strain in the biomechanical sense (ie -
getting pulled and pushed around), and I'm not interested in stress
activated channels, unless all channels are stress-activated - I'm
interested in normal, everyday axons and dendrites, and what happens to
their electrical properties when they get stretched or twisted.  Any
info would be appreciated.
