Inflammation and healing of the brain

Recommended Posts



Listened to the swedish radio today and the main topic was recovery after stroke. The scientist talked about the good effects of inflammation (in the brain) on the recovery of the brain after a stroke. It made me wonder if my brain isn't healing from my depression. Because I know that my CRP is low (below 0,6 mg/L). What do you think? The scientist also mentioned a theory that SSRI could help the brain to heal after a stroke... Weird.
