Patterns of Brain Injury in the Term Infant - Neuroprotective and Neurorehabilitative Approaches


This plenary session will present the major forms of brain injury in the term born infant with hypoxic-ischemic brain injury including the injury to the deep nuclear gray matter, the parasagittal or watershed cortex, the white matter and the cerebrovascular focal injury such as neonatal stroke. These major patterns of injury will be related to etiology, neurodevelopmental outcomes and rehabilitative approaches including therapeutic hypothermia, growth factors, stem cells and NICU and post-discharge therapy services. Neuroprotective strategies during pregnancy will also be discussed. Finally, the long term effects of neonatal brain injury on brain aging will be discussed.
