Research for Brain injury

Hypothermia: Researchers are also looking at ways to slow the time it takes for the brain to die. For example, hypothermia—deep cooling that is known to slow all biologic processes—is a possibility. If we can discover a way to slow the dying process in the brain after stroke, then a great many more people could benefit from treatments that repair the blood vessel.
