Topics include brain and cerebral physiology and HBO. cerebral tissue oxygenation in the ischemic brain, mechanisms of HBO for neurological disorders, clinical aspects of oxygen therapy for ischemic stroke, basic science studies of HBO for stroke, hemorrhagic brain injury, and traumatic brain injury, including acute injury. Experimental applications include treatment for autism, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, cerebral palsy, delayed carbon monoxide toxicity, radiation neurological injury an hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy of the neonate.
