exploration in medical cranial compliance

Since its inception in 1998, the Beckley Foundation has written a number of scientific reports and publications on cranial compliance, or the dynamic functioning of the cranial system as a whole: the skull, the brain tissue, and cranial fluids. The Beckley Foundation’s pioneering work on the topic investigated the relationship between cranial compliance and cognitive function in a study conducted in collaboratoin with Russian Yuri Professor Moskalenko. Neurological activity and the sensitive systems of the brain continue to be a main focus of the Beckley Foundation’s scientific programme, which is currently testing brain function using the latest brain-imaging technology (fMRI and MEG).

Cranial Compliance and Dementia

October 7, 2010 Cranial Compliance

The Beckley Foundation, with Professor Moskalenko, investigated the relationship between CC and a standard test of cognitive functioning named the “Prognosis 1” method. We tested the cognitive functioning of 39 participants between the ages of 70 and 84, which included a number of participants who were suffering from various stages of dementia. The severity of […]

Description of the Moskalenko Method

September 22, 2010 Cranial Compliance

The Moskalenko Method (MM) makes use of bio-impedance data supplied by rheoencephalography (REG), and blood flow data supplied by transcranial dopplerography (TCD), Chest respiratory movements and periphery blood pulsation, taken from finger, to provide information on the nature of cerebral blood flow and the level of Cranial Compliance. Recording the dynamic conditions of brain circulation […]

Cranial Compliance

September 2, 2010 Cranial Compliance

Cranial compliance is a measure of the degree to which brain fluids – blood and cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF)- are able to move around within the cranium  and  so do their work of activating neurons and  washing out toxins. The Beckley Foundation has initiated and supported a five-year long programme of research into the subtle interplay […]
