Ann Stowe, PhD has an overarching hypothesis that the immune system – driven by an autoreactivity to Central Nervous System (CNS)-derived antigens plays a fundamental role in neuronal plasticity within the CNS. B cells, T cells, and natural killer (NK) T cells comprise the adaptive component of the immune system, with their interactions initiated by antigen recognition. In stroke, she hypothesizes that long-term plasticity requires autoreactive T and B cell responses within the parenchyma, derived from lymphocyte populations sensitized to CNS antigens in the periphery.
