RBI Scientist Publish an Article in Progress in Neurobiology
Dr. Darko Orešković of the Laboratory for Neurochemistry and Molecular Neurobiology, Division of Molecular Biology, Ruđer Bošković Institute, and Prof. Dr. Marijan Klarica of the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb, published a review article entitled "Development of hydrocephalus and classical hypothesis of cerebrospinal fluid hydrodynamics: facts and illusions" in the distinguished journal Progress in Neurobiology (IF=9.14), which is among the top 5% of journals in the field of neuroscience.
In the paper, the classical hypothesis of the origin of hydrocephalus established a hundred years ago, which represents the textbook knowledge of medical students, neurologists, neurosurgeons and pathologists, is refuted by the authors, based upon their previously published research results. This paper by Drs. Orešković and Klarica proposes a new and different concept based upon experimental work, thereby opening new possibilities for discovering the cause of certain pathological conditions, primarily hydrocephalus, and potential new approaches to their treatment.
