Grants and Contracts Details


the purpose of sleep continues to be debated. Prevailing hypotheses suggest a role in restoring energy balance, permitting synaptic reorganization, or celluar repair. In a traumatic brain injury, the mechanical forces and ensuring cellular signaling disrupt energy balance, deafferent synapses, damage membranes, proteins and structural elements. The current proposal tests the hypothesis that sleep is an immediate natural reponse to diffuse brain injury likely promoting recovery of the injured brain.
