Theme III: Minimizing Stroke Damage

Stroke Creates Havoc in the Brain

Stroke provokes many molecular and cellular changes in the brain. Like aftershocks from an earthquake, the effects of these changes can continue for days. It is known that the primary effect of stroke and these consequent biochemical changes is the death of brain cells. Understanding the biochemical changes and pathways that lead to the death of brain cells can lead to new ideas as to how to block these processes with drugs and reduce stroke damage.
