Arterial blood entering the rigid skull is pulsatile. The brain requires a homeostatic environment, and a number of disease processes are now being linked to excessive pulsatility in the brain. Given this fact there must be some mechanism in normal brains for diverting the pulsatility away from the brain, providing a smooth flow of blood. Any such system would be constrained by the Monro-Kellie doctrine, which tells us that the sum of volumes entering the rigid skull must equal the sum of… CONTINUE READING
