NIH Grant to Study how to Feed an Injured Brain

The Brain Injury Research Center at UCLA will begin studying ways to help heal a person’s brain immediately upon their arrival to an emergency room after experiencing a traumatic brain injury.  Previously it has been thought that glucose levels needed to be tightly controlled in that situation, but new evidence suggests that the patient may be better off receiving higher levels of glucose and other compounds in order to improve recovery.  To learn more about this fascinating new approach, please follow this link to the UCLA Newsroom:
