Brief description Fluid flow in the brain and spinal cord is important in health and disease. Increased fluid leads to hydrocephalus and spinal cord cysts. Impaired flow through the brain and cord contributes to Alzheimer's disease and other disorders. How fluid flows through the brain and spinal cord is poorly understood. We will study important aspects of flow in the spinal cord and how flow is affected by obstructions in the fluid pathways.
