  • Values are mean (SD); normal values were obtained from five volunteers (10 hemispheres); H=haematoma side; C=contralateral side.

  • 2-150 p<0.01 compared with normal and p<0.05 compared with group I.

  • 2-151 p<0.05 compared with normal.

  • 2-152 p<0.01 compared with both normal and group I.

  • 2-153 p<0.01 compared with normal.

  • 2-154 p<0.01 compared with group 1 and p<0.05 compared with group II.
