Enthusiasm for clinical and basic science research in cerebrovascular disease is increasing because of recent findings of new effective treatments for stroke. This volume of the "Advances in Neurology" series is well timed to coincide with this recrudescence of interest in brain ischemia. This volume includes background papers, articles, and discussions from the Eric K. Fernström symposium "Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Ischemic Brain Damage," in Lund, Sweden, June 13 through 16, 1994, as well as invited chapters from other investigators. The goal of this symposium was to use current knowledge about the mechanisms of ischemia to stimulate discussion about novel strategies for identifying and treating the causes of ischemic brain damage.

This book, then, is both a review of current knowledge about the pathophysiological events in ischemic brain injury and a forum for discussion of new ideas. Chapters are grouped into the following sections based on the cellular pro
