Abstract:

A validated model of water transport in the cerebral environment is both an ambitious and timely task; many brain diseases relate to imbalances in water regulation. From tumours to strokes, chronic or acute, transport of fluid in the brain plays a crucial role. The importance and complexity of the brain, together with the range of unmet clinical needs that are connected with this organ,make the current research a high-priority.

One of the most paradoxical cerebral conditions, hydroce...
