The glymphatic system is a brain-wide fluid transport system that turns on when we sleep. The glymphatic system has gained interest due to its potential importance in neurodegenerative diseases. Copenhagen is currently a “hot spot” for analysis of glymphatic fluid flow. DTU faculty members have already developed the first models for how the glymphatic system contributes to brain swelling following stroke. Work at Rigshospitalet is focused on neuroimaging in man, while basic work is underway at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. Mathematical models are essential aids for understanding, for example, why aging is the most significant risk factor for developing dementia.
