Brain Lab           

Research conducted in our laboratory is concerned with energy demand, energy metabolism, and blood flow in the brain. The role of these mechanisms in the tissue response to pathological insults such as stroke, hypoxia, and seizures is being actively investigated. Our most recent research has centered around brain response to Cerebral Edema and Hypoxia.
