Great idea by Cenk Ayata to organize a symposium accepted at the International Stroke Conference in Nashville, TN. The Spreading Depolarization session kicked off the meeting with a bright and early 7AM start on February 11. The theme was ‘Triggers, Modulators, and Causation’ related to SD. Cenk Ayata, Oliver Sakowitz, Jed Hartings, and Jens Dreier gave presentations. Dick Moberg was on hand to substitute for Cenk (hard at work) when we cruised the boulevard afterward.
