How do the cells of an infant’s developing brain react to the pressures of hydrocephalus? Our former MYI recipient, Dr. Eskandari’s, goal is to find out.
The MIT Technology Review reports on research into advances in MRI technology that could safely detect free radicals, molecules released after brain injury, to speed emergency diagnosis and intervention.
Dr. Stephen A. Back will deliver the scientific keynote address on his work on the development of strategies to promote regeneration and repair of injury to the brain at the Hydrocephalus Association’s 13th National Conference on Hydrocephalus, July 9-11, 2014, Portland, Oregon. Join us!
The NFL and General Electric (GE) will fund a University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) study that will look at an early detection method using imaging known as biomarking, a tool capable of measuring physiological or molecular processes and is used as a standard in clinical health.
In this educational blog, Marvin Sussman, PhD, compares the evolution of the cardiac pacemaker and radiation oncology with that of the shunt to treat hydrocephalus over a 60 year period.
Continuing with our Mentored Young Investigator (MYI) blog series, we want to highlight one of the 2009 recipients, Dana Moore, Ph.D. Her study entitled, “Quantitative measurement of ventricular volume and cortical atrophy to improve diagnosis of Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH),” aimed to improve diagnosis of NPH through imaging. NPH is a chronic neurological disorder in adults. […]
The Hydrocephalus Association sits down with a vice president from Codman Neuro and two members of our Medical Advisory Board (MAB) to discuss the recent recall of CODMAN® CERTAS™ Programmable Valves, also known as shunts, and how it relates to patients. Please read and share the latest information on the recall.
