Abstract:

Repetitive hypobaric exposure in humans induces subcortical white matter change, observable on magnetic resonance imaging MRI and associated with cognitive impairment. Similar findings occur in traumatic brain injury TBI. We are developing a swine MRI-driven model to understand the pathophysiology and to develop treatment interventions.
