One or two helpful repiles. Looking for more!

>>The serial lesion paradigm (e.g. as described in the Finger & Stein
>>book on recovery from brain trauma a few years ago) typically
>>a first and second lesion separated by rather short intervals--e.g.
>>hours, days, at most 2-3 weeks. Ditto ischemic preconditioning:
>>resistance to a second ischemic event relatively soon after the first
>>Does anyone know of studies (published, unpublished, old or still in
>>progress) of "conditioning" or "priming" lesions followed MUCH, MUCH
>>later than a second lesion?
>>I know, of course of "experiments of nature", in which humans
>>a second concussion years after the first typically have more (rather
>>than less) severe symptoms than one might otherwise expect. I am
>>looking for animal studies.
>>I'm not fussy: I'll gladly accept studies with analyses at ANY level:
>>behavioral, neurochemical, histological, etc.
