In 2004 Amanda set up a collaboration with Prof. Yuri Moskalenko, Head of the Laboratory of the Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry in St. Petersburg, and a world-recognized pioneer in cerebral circulation. The Beckley Foundation’s collaboration in Russia over the last five years has produced new and important findings on the dynamics of cerebral blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation, on how these dynamics change with age, and on how these changes relate to alterations in cognition and the health of the brain, with particular reference to vascular forms of dementia, and so far the findings of our work have been presented in 18 peer-reviewed scientific publications.
The monograph entitled ‘Non-Invasive Evaluation of Human Brain Fluid Dynamics and Skull Biomechanics in Relation to Cognitive Functioning’, published through Beckley Foundation Press is available for download here!
