Hemorrhagic stroke is a devastating disease where blood vessels in the brain rupture and damage the neural tissue, with part of this damage due to the build-up of iron and reactive oxygen species.
This project seeks to see if living in an enriched environment and physical rehabilitation can improve the brain’s natural clearance of these toxic substances.
