Kinetics of Cerebrospinal Fluid Exchanges

  • H. Davson
  • M. Bradbury
  • L. Bito


In this paper I propose to review very briefly the main factors concerned in the exchanges of materials within the central nervous system; other authors will be dealing with specific aspects in more detail, so that here I shall only draw a simple sketch for the assistance of those whose interests do not lie specifically in this direction.
