The major pathological mechanism underlying ischemic/ reperfusion injury to brain tissue is a phenomenon known as 'excitotoxicity' in which excessive release of glutamate (which builds up in the extracellular spaces after stroke onset) causes an inappropriate activation of ionotropic N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the brain.
