Hyperthermia worsens outcome after ischemia. While it seems reasonable that hyperthermia would also worsen outcome after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), clinical studies attempting to find a causative relationship between hyperthermia and outcome have been inconclusive. We induced ICH with an...
Augmenting Plasticity and Recovery from Stroke by Modulating the Extracellular Matrix of the Central Nervous SystemDownload
Recovery following stroke occurs almost entirely in the first weeks post injury. Moreover, the efficacy of rehabilitative training is limited beyond this narrow time frame. Sprouting of spared corticospinal tract axons in the spinal cord makes a significant contribution to sensorimotor recovery,...

Chronic systemic inflammatory conditions, such as atherosclerosis, diabetes and obesity are associated with increased risk of stroke, which suggests that systemic inflammation may contribute to the development of stroke in humans. The hypothesis that systemic inflammation may induce brain...
Background: Over 80% of people who experience stroke survive, but for half, their level of activity drops significantly. Even survivors with mild disability become disengaged. Research Question: Based on an ecological model, what perceived facilitators and barriers do stroke survivors encounter...
Background: Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH) is associated with high morbidity and patients commonly suffer motor dysfunction. ICH volume is a significant predictor of outcome, and perihematoma edema may also represent tissue injury. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) can be used to assess in-vivo...
Stroke is a leading cause of disability in Canada. Delayed hypothermia improves outcome in patients following cardiac arrest and reduces lesion volume in rodents after transient focal ischemia, but less is known about the effectiveness of delayed hypothermia following permanent focal ischemia. In...
Stroke, a reduction in blood flow to the brain, activates various proteins that contribute to neuronal death. The matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), specifically MMP2 and MMP9, are important in maintaining the blood brain barrier (BBB). After a stroke the BBB permeability increases which is...
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a rehabilitative technology that can be used to improve walking in individuals with mobility impairments due to neurologic injury or disease. Feedback is essential for efficient FES-assisted walking. The overall goal of my project was to investigate...
Hypoxic-ischemic brain damage (HIBD) is still of major concern in the neonatal period, resulting in chronic neurological sequelae stemming from damage to the term newborn brain. Full-body and focal-head cooling within 6 hours of birth have proven neuroprotective in human newborns and various...
Influence of therapeutic hypothermia on neuroprotection and post-ischemic plasticity in a rat model of global ischemiaDownload
Blood flow to the brain may be disrupted by either a stroke (such as focal ischemia or hemorrhage) or cardiac arrest, where the whole brain becomes ischemic. Both forms of injury result in irreversible neuronal loss leading to neurological impairments and a decrease in the quality of life....
