Interacting Fluid Compartments of the CNS: a Holistic Mathematical Modeling Approach
4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium
GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY - ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 19-20, 2017
Dr. Eleuterio Toro (University of Trento, Trento, Italy) explains his "holistic" mathematical methods to account for the physical dynamics created in the brain, spine and elsewhere in the body. It is hoped that this holistic method will provide a more real-world model for patients struggling with disorders like Chiari and syringomyelia. This presentation was given at the 4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. (2017)
This presentation was given at the 4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This biennial conference brings together scientists, engineers, clinicians and mathematicians from around the world to discuss the underlying mechanisms that cause disorders of CSF flow, like syringomyelia
and Chiari malformation
Participants discuss their own research and bounce ideas off one another to better comprehend these poorly understood mechanisms. Thanks to Dr. John Oshinski
and Dr. M. Keith Sharp
for organizing this year's scientific program.
CSF is proud to once again support this incredible meeting of the minds. This support is made possible by a generous grant from the Monkton Institute, Inc.
