Cranial Pulse Modulation: From Blood Flow to Drug Delivery
2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium
OSLO, NORWAY - JULY 1-2, 2019
Intracranial pressure pulsation can be modified with certain implants in some cases. These implants can then be used as a tool to measure normal changes in brain morphology, blood flow in the brain and the movement of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the solutes found within it.
Dr. Mark Luciano
describes his and his colleagues' work studying intracranial pressure changes and their effects on these processes in the brain. This and studies like it provide some evidence that intracranial pressure changes may be clinically relevant in terms of blood flow, flushing out of solutes in the CSF and, importantly, in terms of possible ways to deliver drugs to the brain.
