A previously unrecognized system that drains waste from the brain at a rapid clip has been discovered by neuroscientists at the University of Rochester Medical Center. The highly organized system acts like a series of pipes that piggyback on the brain's blood vessels, sort of a shadow plumbing system that seems to serve much the same function in the brain as the lymph system does in the rest of the body -- to drain away waste products.

These cells line the Choroid Plexus, a layer of tissue that lines the inside of the ventricles of the nervous system.  The swollen tips of these cells secrete the cerebrospinal fluid which bathes the brain in glucose and proteins, and prevents it from collapsing under its own weight.

#ResearchSpeak: neurofilament levels predicting worsening   Will neurofilament level monitoring replace brain atrophy measurements as the end-organ biomarker of choice? #ResearchSpeak #MSBlog  Neurofilament heavy and light chain levels in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and peripheral blood are a very good biomarker of neuroaxonal damage and loss in MS and other neurodegenerative diseases. Neurofilaments are scaffolding proteins that maintain the structural integrity of axons and nerves. When…

Brain lining. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the lining of the brain, showing the ciliary hairs (orange) of ependymal cells. Ependymal cells are a type of neuroglia (glial cells) that line the ventricles of the brain and produce cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). CSF has a number of functions, including buffering the brain from shock, transporting hormones around the brain and absorbing waste products. The ciliary hairs are used to help circulate the CSF.
