Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

...xygen. The problem begins as the brain tries to recover from CSD, which throws the proportion of crucial ions like potassium and sodium out of balance, taking away the brain’s ability to function efficiently. This change in the proportion of chemicals gradually sweeps across the brain like a slowly spread...

Amphibians in losing race with environmental change

...ion may, in time, allow amphibians to react to and recover from the new environmental insults, Blaustein said, if they don't go extinct first. But evolution is an erratic, often slow and imperfect system, and the complexities of amphibian life cycles makes them more immediately vulnerable than many other ...

Seals protect brain, conserve oxygen by turning off shivering response on icy dives

...hat they use nearly all their oxygen, but they can recover with these special adaptations. Humans cannot tolerate oxygen levels nearly so low as a seal can. "Somehow they tolerate hypoxia better, we don't know why," Folkow said. The study of how seals handle this lack of oxygen may someday give us knowled...

Brains can recover from alcoholic damage but patients should stop drinking as soon as possible

...wth. Our findings show the ways that the brain can recover from the toxic insults of chronic alcoholism and substantiate the early measurable benefits of therapeutic sobriety. However, they also suggest that prolonged dependence on alcohol may limit rapid recovery from white matter brain injury. "Modern n...
