The group of neurophysiologists is focused on the study of functions of the cerebral lymphatic system and development the new methods for real-time monitoring and analysis of lymphatic drainage and clearing of the human and anamial brain using two-photon, confocal and electron microscopy, magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalography, histological and morphological approaches.
In clinical studies using modern technologies for visualization of brain structures, the lymphatic processes of removing toxins from the central nervous system are studied. Pioneering technologies are being developed for modulating lymphatic processes of elimination of blood from brain in newborns and beta-amyloid in patients with Alzheimer's disease.
We develop pioneering technologies for in vivo visualization of transparent lymphatic vessels of the brain and its meninges, as well as for real-time monitoring of the lymphatic drainage of the brain in rodents using multiphoton, fluorescence microscopy and optical coherence tomography.
