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 lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Secret Tunnels Between Skull, Brain Speed Immune Cells After Stroke in Mice

Since we just found the drain pipes in the brain, maybe this will become the next find. I bet your stroke hospital has no clue that this research has occurred.

Secret Tunnels Between Skull, Brain Speed Immune Cells After Stroke in Mice


MONDAY, Aug. 27, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Immune cells use channels that run from skull bone marrow to the lining of the brain to rapidly respond to stroke and other brain injuries, a new study in mice suggests.
Bone marrow is the spongy tissue inside bones. Along with red blood cells, it produces immune cells that fight infections and heal injuries.
"We always thought that immune cells from our arms and legs traveled via blood to damaged brain tissue. These findings suggest that immune cells may instead be taking a shortcut to rapidly arrive at areas of inflammation," explained Francesca Bosetti, program director of U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
"Inflammation plays a critical role in many brain disorders and it is possible that the newly described channels may be important in a number of conditions. The discovery of these channels opens up many new avenues of research," Bosetti added in a NINDS news release.
NINDS funded the study, which was published Aug. 27 in the journal Nature Neuroscience. Dr. Matthias Nahrendorf, a professor at Harvard Medical School, led the research.
His team initially detected these channels in mice, and then they looked for and found them in human skulls.
Using cell-specific dyes, researchers were able to tell whether immune cells traveling to brain tissue damaged by stroke or meningitis came from bone marrow or from the tibia, a large bone in the leg.
While they found that the skull is more likely to supply the immune cells during a stroke, similar numbers came from the skull and the tibia during a heart attack.
Future studies will examine what other types of cells travel through these skull channels, and what role the channels play in health and illness, according to NINDS.
