Cerebral hypoxia/ischemia (H/I) of the premature infant is a major cause of cerebral palsy and mental retardation. An important determinant of the ultimate outcome from this insult is the extent to which the stem cells and progenitors in the brain are affected. Irreversible injury to these cells will impair normal development of the infant's brain and, hence, its function. In the present study, we examine early intervals after H/I to identify which cells in the periventricular region are most… CONTINUE READING
