A new study in eLife provides evidence that our brains may drain waste via our lymphatic vessels. The vessels may act as a 'pipeline' between the brain and immune system. Researchers say the findings could alter the way we think about how the brain and immune system inter-relate.
Researchers have discovered lymphatic vessels carry previously unknown messages from the brain to the immune system that triggers multiple sclerosis. Blocking the messages may provide new treatment options for the disease.
A new study points to a newly discovered system in which the brain removed waste as a potential new tool to treat neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers have identified a direct cellular interaction between the nervous system and the immune system. Pain sensing neurons around the lymph nodes can modulate lymph node activity.
According to a new study, sleeping on your side helps the clear the brain of some neurotoxins, like amyloid beta, and could potentially reduce risk for developing some neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers have identified the signaling molecules that activate the lymphatic pathway. The study also identified the cells that produce the signaling molecule and how they are used in lymphatic development.
Researchers discover the brain and immune system are directly linked through vessels previously thought not to exist.
A new study reveals nanoparticles from tattoo ink travels into the body and reaches the lymph nodes. Researchers have collected visual evidence showing lymph nodes tinted with the colors of a person's tattoos.
