normal pressure hydrocephalus research
I am interested in info about NPH , normal pressure hydrocephalus From what I read on web, the diagnosis is is based on certain general symptoms (gait/balance/brain fog etc) , & mri reading. From what I can tell , they tap your spinal fluid, potentially lower pressure, & observe if it reduces symptoms.
My questions concern the amount of research & understanding at the molecular level of whats going on. Is or has anyone got a handle (or currently looking at) what the cellular/protein activities causing hydrocephalus are? Is surgery/shunts the only approach?
I have a hearing problem & my reading tells me there are many studies going on to correct hearing loss thru neuro cellular protein solutions.
Seems the same approach should be happening with NPH.
So, my question is who, & where might that kind of research be going on, & where might I find info about it on web.
