Delayed and prolonged post-ischemic hypothermia is neuroprotective in the gerbil.


Global ischemia, in the gerbil, produces profound hippocampal CA1 loss which leads to functional abnormalities (e.g. habituation impairment). In experiment 1, gerbils were subjected to 3 or 5 min of normothermic (brain) ischemia. Hypothermic groups were cooled to 32 degrees C for 12 h beginning 1 h after ischemia, while control groups (no hypothermia… (More)
