The glymphatic system is the analogue of the lymphatic system of the brain, with the ‘G’ in the front of the word standing for ‘glia’, or ‘glial cells’ that are part of it. Its aim is to remove any unnecessary remains of metabolic processes – a very important task, considering that these remains may prove harmful to the brain. It’s been observed that the glymphatic system is more active when we sleep. Dr hab. Marta Obara-Michlewska from the Mirosław Mossakowski Institute of Experimental and Clinical Medicine of the Polish Academy of Science discussed the subject during a lecture as part of the International Brain Awareness Week 2020.więcej o The glymphatic system: working the night shift

We celebrate our birthdays to mark the fact that we have lived yet another year on planet Earth, but how many birthdays are too many? One of the greatest challenges facing contemporary medicine is not extending the lifespan of a person, but rather keeping that person in good health until their final days. Currently, our physical and mental health is threatened chiefly by neurodegenerative diseases with unknown aetiology. These neurodegenerative diseases were the subject of the lecture delivered by Dr hab. Grzegorz Kreiner from the Department of Brain Biochemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences during the International Brain Awareness Week.więcej o How long is too long?
