The author presents a discussion of research on cerebral arterial spasm. Arterial smooth muscle contraction, receptor and relaxation mechanisms are presented in the context of what is known about cerebral arterial spasm and the biochemistry of vascular smooth muscle. Several new experimental approaches are suggested and a theoretical biochemical basis for the idea that damage to the artery alone could cause cerebral arterial spasm is postulated. Methods of determining cerebral arterial spasm… CONTINUE READING
