Our Laboratory has focused on the topic of recovery of function following brain injury. Over the years we have been able to describe the neurochemical and metabolic cascade that occurs from the moment of insult and how these parameters change when injury occurs during development. In an animal model of cerebral concussion, this cascade is characterized by an increase in extracellular potassium via the stimulation of NDNA receptors, resulting in a marked increased in the utilization of glucose to drive sodium/potassium pumps. This increase in glycolysis is transient followed within hours by a marked depression in overal cerebral metabolism lasting for several days to weeks. This injury-induced cascase dramatically alters the cellular milieu to the point where cells that are not directly and irreversibly damaged are rendered extremely vulnerable to secondary insults compromising their ability to exhibit therapeutic plasticity. Behavioral studies addressing the rate and/or extend of recovery span multiplemodalities ranging from sensorimotor function to cognition. In addition to the basic science issues surrounding neuroplasticity and recovery, we also maintain an active human patient research program. In this clinical research program, head injured patients are studied neurochemically through cerebral microdialysis and metabolically via quantitative positron emission tomography. As with the animal findings, human head injured patients exhibit the same sequence of neurochemical and neurometabolic events. With the capability of bridging the basic-clinical science gap we have provided the foundation from which we hope to provide therapeutic treatments for recovery of function.
