Physiology of perivascular drainage of the brain and how it is affected by advancing age

In research into the neurophysiology of ageing, “it is essential to have a firm understanding of the normal brain and its functions”, said Dr Carare, senior lecturer in the Faculty of Medicine. “Our research will help to clarify the normal physiology of drainage pathways for fluid and solutes from the brain and the effects that age has upon these pathways. We hope that within five years enough will be known about the physiology of lymphatic drainage of the brain to embark upon devising therapies that facilitate the perivascular elimination of peptide amyloid-ß from the brain for increasing well-being and delaying the onset of cognitive decline in the elderly.”
