To determine the motor and cognitive deficits following a diffuse severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) in immature Sprague Dawley rats (17 days), four groups of animals were injured at different severity levels using a new closed head weight drop model: (sham, severe injury [SI: 100 g/2 m], SH [SI + hypoxemia (30 min of an FiO2 of 8% posttrauma)], and ultra severe injury [US: 150 g/2 m]). Latency on beam balance, grip test performance, and maintenance of body position on an inclined board were… CONTINUE READING
