The glymphatic system: working the night shift

The glymphatic system: working the night shift

19.11.2020
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.
