Many conditions can cause metabolic damage to the CNS, and they do so through a variety of mechanisms. Stroke, for instance, causes anoxic damage to a region of the brain, the actual cell death being due to excitotoxicity, release of free radicals, release of nitric oxide, and other mechanisms. This chapter therefore describes some of the major mechanisms causing metabolic damage in CNS pathology, and then some of the more common conditions.

Keywords:   metabolic damage, CNS, stroke, anoxic damage, cell death, nitric oxide
