Discovery of Human Brain Lymph Vessels Offers Alzheimer’s Researchers New Possibilities
In a discovery that might provide an entirely new angle to Alzheimer’s disease research, scientists have mapped lymphatic vessels to the outside of the brains of living humans. Because these vessels are the main route traveled by immune cells, the finding, described in the journal eLife, may allow scientists to study if, and how, immune
