Stress matters to brain's white matter

Here is an interesting article in the LA Times that doesn't actually mention MS, let alone CCSVI, but it does mention cortisone, myelin, brain white matter, and oligodendrocytes:

http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-white-matter-stress-20140211,0,7536685.story#axzz2t8CwkPUg

Basically the article seems to be saying (toward the end of the article) that stress and cortisone both trigger stem cells in the brain to become new myelin instead of new neurons.

The cell re-programs changes its fate, from wanting to become a neuron to wanting ...

Venous Hemodynamics in Neurologic Disorders

Clive Beggs, Ph.D. (Centre for Infection Control and Biophysics, University of Bradford, Bradford, UK)

Abstract There is increasing evidence that the cerebral veins and sinuses play an important role in regulating fluids in the intracranial space . There is evidence that venous anomalies may contribute to the pathophysiology of several neurological conditions, including multiple sclerosis (MS) , leukoaraiosis [5, ...

Intervention Studies 2014 B. Therapy Trials Need to Wait. The Landscape has Changed

Kottil W. Rammohan, M.D.

Background: Numerous open label and few blinded studies have been reported on the “liberation” therapy since the original description of the disorder by Dr. Paolo Zamboni in 2008. Although most of these trials report no benefit for this endovascular intervention, Over 30,000 patients with various types and stages of ...

Foundational research is being done

http://www.buffalo.edu/news/releases/2014/02/0050.html
Zivadinov and his colleagues published a paper on the prevalence of these abnormalities in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients in 2011. The paper is one of the top ten articles in neurology and the second most cited paper in neurology since its publication, according to Neuropenews, the news blog of the European Federation of Neurological Societies and the European Neurological Society.

Think of the citations.

Trauma reduces the flow through the IJVs

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3566196/
From an article titled, MRI Evidence for Altered Venous Drainage and Intracranial Compliance in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, published this month:
In conclusion, the current study provides imaging-based evidence of a chronically reduced cerebral venous drainage through the internal jugular veins, an increased drainage in secondary venous channels with a concomitantly mild decreased intracranial compliance and mild increased intracranial pressure in supine subjects with a history of mTBI.
