Schematic Diagram (IMAGE) Institute for Basic Science Caption Stroke affects not only the brain areas where the blood supply is interrupted or reduced (infarct), but also other distal areas (diaschisis). The researchers studied mouse brains and found that diaschisis is due to the excessive production of the neurotransmitter GABA and that the administration of KDS2010 combined with rehabilitation can improve motor function after stroke.
