Putative neuroexcitation in cerebral ischemia and brain injury.

Involvement of neuroexcitatory mechanisms in cerebral ischemia and brain injury was explored in experimental models of repetitive forebrain ischemia by temporary occlusion of carotid arteries in gerbils and cryogenic injury to the cerebral cortex in rats and gerbils. Our observations in these models revealed a pattern of injury that involved some anatomic… CONTINUE READING
