BeschreibungThe disorder is characterized by a reduction in both oxygen supply and blood flow to the brain, can be caused by local or systemic conditions, and can lead to serious complications or death if prolonged. Scientists from many parts of the world report and review recent research findings on such aspects as whether age influences ischemic tolerance in the brain, perfusion imaging in acute ischemic stroke, neuro-regeneration in the immature brain, and perinatal hypoxic brain injury.
