Announcing a new thematic series on CNS Fluid and Solute Movement: Physiology, Modelling and Imaging.
Knowledge of the diverse routes and functions of fluid and solute movement in the CNS has implications for many devastating and currently incurable neurological diseases. The subject has become an area of intense research and debate. This thematic series aims to bring together a collection of current papers on all aspects of fluid movement in the brain, helping to address current controversies.
Submission deadline: March 31st, 2019
