Decrease in intracellular water leads to disorder of nerve impulse conduction, and of substrates transport system, of metabolism.
If all solutes are considered to be ideal, and if the initial composition is considered to be 1 osmomolal=(Osmolal) (a typical value for a plant cell, and a few times higher than that of most animal cells), where only 10% of the initial intracellular water is considered.
They accomplish this by evacuating much of their intracellular water and replacing it with solutions of glycerol or glucose, which act like antifreeze and help prevent intracellular freezing.
Lesions with low blood flow appear bright or hyperintenses[2] on diffusion-weighted images because of the intracellular water accumulation resulting from reduced water mobility.[8, 12, 13, 17] These hyperintense regions are associated with slow water diffusion, which is correlated with stroke.[18, 20] Additional factors that may cause a hyperintense signal include a decrease in brain pulsation secondary to arterial occlusion, a reduction in temperature in ischemic tissues, changes in osmolarity of extracellular fluid in the brain and restricted proton motion secondary to intracellular water accumulation (edema).[18]
