Money to research project in Umea for ”brain washing machine”, the Glymphatic system

The project Glymphatic system - a factor in dementia development is about moving forward with methods to investigate the Glymphatic system in humans. Hopefully this will be new tools for diagnoses and treatments, says Anders Eklund, professor at Umeå University and project manager. The research group is already a world leader in research on hydrocephalus, which is a disease with disturbance of pressure and flow in the cerebrospinal fluid system. Within this work, advanced methods have been created to investigate the cerebrospinal fluid system in patients.
