Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an excessive amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in chambers of the brain known as ventricles. Hydrocephalus is caused by an imbalance between the production and absorption of CSF.

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.
Shannon Moore (18) was diagnosed with a rare #craniopharyngioma when she was just nine-years-old. She underwent emergency surgery and has endured several operations over the years, plus treatment including radiotherapy and hormone replacement. Now studying music technology at Amersham & Wycombe College, she is certified blind and relies on a long cane to help her get about. Here, Shannon attends landmark Westminster event during National Brain Tumour Awareness month. (March 25th, 2015)
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found a simple way to turn bone marrow stem cells directly into brain precursor cells, a potential breakthrough in the treatment of neurological diseases and injuries (via Science Daily). Also here: www.scripps.edu/...
Kundalini Shakti resides in a coiled form at the bottom of our spinal cord. Once the Kundalini Shakti gets “diksha”,it starts flowing from the bottom of our spine where the brain can completely alchemize its energy into vital hormones and higher spiritual energy.Once a full Kundalini has awakened,it completes the circuit from the genital parts to the brain through the spine.During this,all the seven chakras,experience a breakthrough opening after which the person possesses great intelligence
