Among professor Hachinski most important discoveries are the key role of the insula of the brain for sudden death and, together with other researchers, the ischaemia-amyloid – inflammation link between Alzheimer disease and stroke, paving the way for novel therapeutic approaches.
Professor Norrving was corresponding author of the Swedish Aspirin Low Dose Trial (SALT), a landmark publication in the Lancet in 1991, later included in Vintage Papers from Lancet of the most important papers from 1823 to 2005.
