Shunting is the most common treatment for anyone with hydrocephalus (excess fluid buildup in the ventricles of the brain). Hydrocephalus shunting involves the implantation of two catheters and flow control valve system to drain the excess accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the brain’s ventricles (or the lumbar subarachnoid space) to another part of the body where it can be absorbed... Another good publication for those learning about Hydrocephalus from square one!

Hydrocephalus: also known as "water in the brain," is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles, or cavities, of the brain. This may cause increased intracranial pressure inside the skull and progressive enlargement of the head, convulsion, tunnel vision, and mental disability. Hydrocephalus can also cause death.
Scientists at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) have identified a new target for treating aggressive brain tumours glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Scientists have found the protein EphA3 causes cancer to grow in about half of GBM tumour cases. QIMR spokesman Dr Bryan Day says it has been eradicated in mice in lab trials.

Nile Mitchell, 5, was diagnosed with #craniopharyngioma and underwent a minimally invasive surgery (through the nose) performed by Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield at NewYork-Presbyterian/ Komansky Center for Children's Health ( weillcornellbrain... ). 98% of the tumor was removed. The residual 2% was stuck to the brain, where doctors will monitor it and, if necessary, prescribe radiation doses to kill it.
[Photo of Alois Alzheimer (1864 - 19 December 1915)] First Ever Alzheimer's Patient Diagnosed - 106 Years Later: More than a hundred years after Alois Alzheimer identified Auguste Deter as the 1st Alzheimer's patient, an analysis of that original patient's brain has revealed the genetic origin of Alzheimer's.
Kundalini Shakti resides in a coiled form at the bottom of our spinal cord.
