    ..Therefore, vascular risk factors associated with endothelial dysfunction may predict normobaric hyperoxia nonresponders in ischemic stroke. These data may have implications for myocardial and systemic circulation as well. ..

    ..Data suggest that abnormally enhanced plasticity can be as detrimental to efficient learning as reduced plasticity and highlight how genetically enhanced neuronal excitability may impact cognitive function. ..

    ..Based on the data, we propose that minimizing sensory stimulation and hypoxic or hypotensive transients in stroke and brain injury would reduce PID incidence and their adverse impact on outcome. ..

    ..Together, our data suggest that exposure to EE promotes angiogenesis in the ischemic brain that may in part be mediated by blood-borne factors. ..

    ..Our data suggest that the responses of pial arterioles to NMDA are caused in part by neurovascular coupling due to cortical spreading depression. ..

    ..These data suggest that hyperlipidemia disrupts cerebral blood flow regulation and diminishes collateral perfusion in acute stroke in the absence of hemodynamically significant atherosclerosis...
