An Exploration of Acute Intermittent Hypoxia as a Tool to Enhance Neural Recovery in Stroke

Project: Research project

Description

The goal of this project is to evaluate a promising therapy (acute intermittent hypoxia) in stroke survivors. This therapy may induce neural plasticity and thus enhance recovery in persons recovering from a neurological injury, and it has shown great promise in persons with spinal cord injury. For this study, we aim to establish safety and limited efficacy of the therapy in up to 20 stroke survivors
