Neuroprotection and Cardiovascular Control
We are interested in the pathophysiological mechanisms of perinatal hypoxic–ischemic global injury, neuroprotective intervention and brain repair. We also investigate the human cardiovascular physiology including control and regulation of the cardiovascular system.
The group operates within the following two research areas:
- Neuroprotection: We use neonatal experimental models to emulate/mimic the hypoxic brain injury human newborns are exposed to. This is done by exposure of animals to hypoxia and ischemia of various degrees. The neuroprotective interventions we are mostly interested in are induced hypothermia, inhalation of xenon and combinations of both, but we also investigate other neuroprotective treatment options.
- Cardiovascular physiology: We investigate the human cardiovascular physiology including control and regulation of the cardiovascular system.
