SJS comment: This article shows us that long after a stroke occurs HBOT can help restore brain function by oxygenating the nonfunctional area around the stroke. This area of brain tissue is in a state of suspended animation from low oxygen.

“Recovery after stroke correlates with non-active (stunned) brain regions, which may persist for years… The results indicate that HBOT can lead to significant neurological improvements in post stroke patients even at chronic late stages. The observed clinical improvements imply that neuroplasticity (brain repair and remodeling) can still be activated long after damage.”
