Alucinaciones by Oliver Sacks

By Oliver Sacks

Oliver Sacks vuelve a hacer gala de su singular talento como narrador, su sentido del humor y su inmensa cultura para plantear cuestiones que ponen en entredicho nuestra percepción del mundo y, muchas veces, nuestra propia identidad. Desde las visiones religiosas y su explicación fisiológica hasta el uso de drogas psicodélicas como puerta a una percepción inside que los sentidos nos niegan, los relatos del health professional Sacks van más allá del mero historial médico y constituyen una auténtica historia cultural de los angeles percepción, un estudio antropológico de una supuesta anormalidad que no es, en el fondo, más que el reverso de lo que normalmente conocemos como realidad. «Fascinante. l. a. comprensión del health practitioner Sacks hacia sus pacientes y su perspectiva filosófica transforman simples casos clínicos en relatos que iluminan las complejidades del cerebro humano y los misterios de los angeles mente humana» (Michiko Kakutani, long island Times).

Different treatments have been tested to stop apoptosis in animal models of ischemic stroke. It has been proved that hyperbaric oxygen therapy limits infarct volume preserving more brain tissue and promoting neurological functional recovery [35]. It has also been demonstrated that chronic treatment with low doses of lithium provides neuroprotection in a transient model of focal cerebral ischemia by blocking apoptotic mechanisms 24 Cerebrovasc Dis 2006;21(suppl 2):21–29 [36]. The administration of oral creatine results in a remarkable reduction in ischemic brain infarction volume and neuroprotection by the reduction of postischemic caspase-3 activation and cytochrome c release [37].
