White matter damage induced by multiple pathogenic mechanisms following acute brain injury was investigated in this thesis. White matter tissue from human head- injured patients, experimental animal models of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation, an in vitro model of lipid peroxidation and an in vivo model of focal cerebral ischaemia were used to determine cytoskeletal changes in white matter. These models were also used to determine if there were interactions between primary pathogenic mediators and secondary mechanisms.
