Neuropharmacological modulation of cognitive deficits after brain damage.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review discusses recent studies that have implications for potential neuropharmacological interventions which target cognitive deficits resulting from traumatic brain injury or stroke. RECENT FINDINGS: An important new study concerning the activity of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors after brain injury reveals that previous influential hypotheses about an increase in glutamate triggering neuronal death may need to be revised. Furthermore, the study suggests that ...Expand abstract
