Lakshmi Raman, M.D.
Dr.Lakshmi Raman's interest is in brain injury. Her interest particularly focuses on the effect of long-term hypoxia on the hippocampus. She has published work on the long-term effects of hypoxia on the hippocampus. She is the principle investigator for the project looking at the "Mechanism of mTOR mediated decrease in myelination in chronic hypoxia". As an extension of her interest in brain injury she serves as the principle investigator in a "Randomized clinical trial using 23 % vs 3% hypertonic saline in the management of intracranial hypertension in traumatic brain injury" is actively recruiting patient for the study. She is also one of the investigators in the Crystal Charity Ball Collaborative Program for Pediatic Brain injuries in Texas. She also serves as an active member of the Perot Brain and Nerve injury center which co-ordinates various clinical studies involved in brain injury.
