In brief: Research underway

Here are a constelation of studies: http://www.
Medicalgasresearch.Com/content/1/1/21. Most studies have been done with severe traumatic brain injury patients. I believe that the jury is still out.

In brief: Hyperbaric Brain

There is no evidence that hyperbaric oxygen works on these types of problems.
There are specialists that do offer this therapy to patients but you should ask about the research results before committing to this treatment regimen. Medicare does not cover this indication, so the personal cost and professional profit can be large.

In brief: Yes

Hbot is very effective.
The passive oxygen diffuses under pressure to every part of the brain including the damaged area, helping with repair. May need 10+ treatments to see results.
