Selective neuronal death of the hippocampal CA1 area after mild ischemia is known as delayed neuronal death (DND). Progression of DND was evaluated using 7T MRI in gerbils. In the CA1, the T2 relaxation time started to increase on day 3 and was significantly higher on day 4 than that of the control gerbils. However, the apparent diffusion coefficient of… CONTINUE READING
