This thesis addresses presynaptic pathology after acute brain injury. The integrity of presynaptic terminals after human head injury is not known and there are inconsistent reports regarding the sensitivity of presynaptic terminals in animal models of acute brain injury. Using a range of presynaptic markers, including high affinity nicotinic receptors and proteins specifically located within the nerve terminal, the question of presynaptic terminal integrity was studied in human postmortem material and compared to that in animal models of acute brain injury.
