Abstract

In order to elucidate the role of biochemical perturbation in the evolution of primary neuronal damage at the initial stage of cerebral ischemia, a rat model of irreversible, middlecerebral artery occlusion was chosen and serial experiments were designed to verify whether some putative, deleterious neurotransmitters bear the same role as they play in the development of secondary neuronal damage which emerges during the phase of reperfusion.
