Improving longterm outcomes after surgery for congenital heart disease

Survival has improved but neurobehavioral disabilty remains a common complication with adverse impacts on quality of life, educational and occupational attainments, and resource utilization. There is increasing evidence that brain development is abnormal, and leads to a rrisk of peri-operative brain injury. Studies are needed to; 1. Further define the prevalence and spectrum of neurobehavioral disability. 2, Understand ...more »

Understanding Glymphatic Pathways and Waste Clearance abnormalities in brain disease

Cerbrospinal fluid flow and waste clearance through glyphatic pathways are likely to be important in numerous brain diseases including such devastating diseases such as alzheimer's , parkinson's, stroke and migraine. However, relatively little is known about the brain's waste clearance mechanisms, and how failure in these systems may underlie brain disease. Build up of proteins and calcification have been shown to ...more »

Lipid and lipoprotein metabolism in the CNS

The analysis of lipoprotein metabolism has traditionally been restricted to the easily accessible circulation and peripheral tissues. Very little work has been done behind the blood brain barrier, where many of the lipid carrying or metabolizing genes are also expressed. Yet we know very little about their functions there, although for instance ApoE4 is THE primary risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer's disease. Conventional ...more »

Mechanical interaction of the cerebral vascular system with the brain parenchyma during mild traumatic brain injury

Dangerous mechanical interaction of the cerebral vascular system with the brain parenchyma during mild traumatic brain injury from either a blast wave or from impact may result from a combination of shear and compression deformation waves that causes non-diffusive extracellular fluid motion. Measure the mechanical response, to a combination of shear and compressive deformation, of animal model specimens containing the ...more »
