Diaschisis (from Greek, meaning "shocked throughout"[1]) is a sudden loss of function in a portion of the brain connected to but at a distance of a damaged area.[2] The site of the originally damaged area and of the diaschisis are connected to each other by neurons.[3] The injury is produced by an acute focal disturbance in an area of the brain. [How to reference and link to summary or text]
The term diaschisis was coined by Constantin von Monakow in 1914. Nowadays the term diaschisis is used to describe a depression of regional neuronal metabolism and cerebral blood flow caused by dysfunction in an anatomically separate but functionally related neuronal region.[1]
