This paper suggests an on-line identification algorithm for estimating a cerebrospinal fluid outflow resistance-one important lumped parameter in the well-known finite-dimensional nonlinear model describing a behaviour of intracranial pressure of humans. The results of on-line tests of the presented algorithm on recorded experimental data are given.
