Work Summary: Dr. Ransom is an internationally recognized authority on the physiology and function of glial cells and on the pathophysiology of neural injury. Especially relevant to stroke is the research that Dr. Ransom and colleagues conduct on how the long processes of neurons, called axons, are injured. Much of the neurological dysfunction seen after stroke is a consequence of axonal damage.
