    Young adults with stroke frequently do not have any of the traditional risk factors associated with stroke, prompting a search for other mechanical and hypercoagulable causes. The authors report a young man presenting with stroke and subsequently diagnosed with a carotid dissection. Recurrent...

    Acute ischemic stroke is regarded as the second leading cause of death. As a primary antiplatelet agent, aspirin has been widely used for the prevention of ischemic stroke. In this study, we aimed to explore the mechanism of aspirin to improve ischemic stroke. The rats were divided into four...

    Recent findings have demonstrated that stroke lesions affect neural communication in the entire brain. However, it is less clear whether network interactions are also relevant for plasticity and repair. This study investigated whether the coherence of neural oscillations at language or motor...
