Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

What a concussion looks like in the brain, on the cellular level

We need something like this for stroke. It may be in rats but we have to start somewhere. This could provide indisputable proof of the neuronal cascade of death. And that might get researchers to solve for that problem. But only if we have stroke leadership pushing that strategy.

Scientists have captured in real-time video what happens to a brain cell after experiencing a major concussion-causing impact.
The detailed video was created as part of a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports on Tuesday. It shows a rat's brain cell -- not those of a human -- but the research provides the first-ever glimpse of a concussion's effects on the cellular level at such high resolution and over a 24-hour timeline, said Christian Franck, an assistant professor at Brown University's School of Engineering and a co-author of the study.
He added that the study findings could hold clues about how to treat human brain trauma victims more quickly and effectively, as the video timeline reveals that irreversible damage begins about six hours after impact.
