Managing Traumatic Brain Injury and Improving Patient Outcomes
Traumatic injury to the brain or spinal cord invariably has serious and long-term functional consequences.
Following trauma, cells in the lesion site die rapidly, with resultant immediate loss of function. In addition, neurons and supporting cells in the area beyond the initial lesion are vulnerable and can undergo delayed death leading to further progressive functional loss.
In this public lecture, Professor Fitzgerald will talk about treatment strategies for neurotrauma, including outcomes of her research, with a focus on milder injuries like concussion.
