Basic Science Advances for Clinicians Protecting White Matter From Stroke Injury

W hite matter (WM) exclusively contains axons and their glial cell partners including astrocytes, oligodendro-cytes (myelinating and nonmyelinating), and microglia. WM comprises about half of the forebrain volume of humans, a 3-to 4-fold increase over rodents, the animals most used for neuroscience research. The low relative volume of WM in rodents led to… CONTINUE READING
