The speaker presented his experimental research on the pathophysiology of brain cell oedema on rats. The research team created a model of brain cells during an oedema by water intoxication. The model was successfully validated by CT scans and MRI of hyper hydrated rats. The model can be used in future research on protecting the neurons and the cellular membrane in general.

Following the presentation took place a fruitful discussion on the possibilities of application to humans and ways to improve and even expand the model.
