  title={Apoptosis in Focal Cerebral Ischemia},
  author={M. Choppl and Yaping Lil}
An ischemic insult to the brain evokes cell damage which may progress to cell death. We invariably associate cell death with necrosis. Necrosis exhibits well defined morphological characteristics, and the biochemical and biophysical processes associated with necrosis have been identified. However, another form of cell death exists, apoptosis. Apoptosis plays an important role in the early development of tissues. Cells undergoing apoptosis exhibit very different morphological characteristics and… CONTINUE READING
