This section covers all aspects of brain anatomy, development, plasticity and repair in human, cellular, organoid and animal models. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, neural development, glial development, neural activity, synapse formation, stem cells, plasticity, neurotrauma and repair, neuropharmacology, pathophysiology, and regeneration and genetics and genomics of neural development and function.
A comparative study on the efficacy of 10% hypertonic saline and equal volume of 20% mannitol in the treatment of experimentally induced cerebral edema in adult rats
Hypertonic saline and mannitol are commonly used in the treatment of cerebral edema and elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) at present. In this connection, 10% hypertonic saline (HS) alleviates cerebral edema...
