Brain changes after stroke may lead to increased preference for alcohol, research suggests
Although it is known that excessive alcohol intake (more than two drinks per day) is a risk factor for stroke, there hasn't been much scientific study about how alcohol-related behavior might change after a stroke has occurred. When researchers at the Texas A&M College of Medicine looked into the issue, they found that strokes in a certain part of the brain increase alcohol-seeking behavior and preference for alcohol.

New Material to Help Repair Brain Tissue Damaged by Stroke
One of the reasons why strokes are so devastating is that brain tissue does not exhibit the same healing mechanisms as other tissues that repair themselves quickly. Integrin proteins are responsible for some of the healing processes, including getting new cells to move and having them adhere to the extracellular matrix, and these are not strongly present within damaged brain tissue. In order to get the brain to heal itself better than on its own, a team led by UCLA scientists has come up with a material that is similar to the extracellular matrix and that promotes the activity of integrin to heal nearby tissues.
