A diagrammatic vertical section through the brain showing the location of the ventricles and the direction of flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). CSF is formed by the choroid plexuses (CP), mainly in the lateral ventricles, and drains into the blood via the arachnoid villi and the spinal nerve roots
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 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/...
Reece Winterbottom, 7 yrs old, underwent an amazing 6-hour operation through his nose to remove his brain tumor (craniopharyngioma) by paediatric neurosurgeon Mr Saurabh Sinha at the Children's Hospital, Sheffield, UK. Thankfully, it all went well.
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

Single driver mutation found in papillary #craniopharyngioma , the adult form of the tumor. A research team at the Broad Institute & Dana-Farber has uncovered a single mutation in the gene BRAF was found in nearly all tumor cells in nearly all cases studied..The scenario suggests it is a potent therapeutic target...(read inside) (via Broad Institute, posted Jan 30, 2014).
