Multidisciplinary clinic launched in Cambridge

Addenbrooke’s has launched a one-stop, multidisciplinary clinic to help identify and treat people with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and other cerebrospinal fluid disorders. NPH is caused by an abnormal build-up of fluid in the brain, and leads to memory loss, poor balance, and bladder problems. It typically affects people over 65 and is often mistaken …

The University of Artois is using neural networks to identify relevant intracranial pressure and flow features

Dr Olivier Peltre (Post-Doctoral Researcher) and Dr Yaël Frégier (Senior Lecturer) “The team here at the University of Artois are using neural networks to identify relevant features in intracranial pressure (ICP) signals and flow signals (arterial and venous blood flow, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow). The first step is to collect, anonymise and prepare the …
