Neurocritical Care Program
Children's Neurocritical Care Program is dedicated to scientific research with the potential to greatly improve brain recovery in seriously ill and injured children.
We are currently studying several areas, including:
- assessments of heart and brain interactions
- cerebral metabolism
- cerebrovascular autoregulation
- assessments of brain function and substructure networks in coma
- neuropharmacology and therapeutics for refractory status epilepticus
We are also taking part in national and international studies of traumatic brain injury, and are collaborating with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on signal processing and computational physiology efforts.
