Early research centered on the changes in energy metabolism that are associated with brain damage. This extended into methods of measuring brain edema and the effectiveness of drugs in treating this condition. More recently, the role of free radicals in brain damage was studied and in particular the manner in which transition metals (iron and copper) propagate free radicals in these injuries.
