Vasomotion during sleep and transport in the brain

How do specific vascular dynamics during sleep affect solute transport in the brain? Thanks to amazing interdisciplinary team efforts, our paper is out in Nature communications ! Sleep has been shown to enhance brain clearance both in mice and humans, but the precise reason for this is unknown. The motion of vascular walls is suspected to be the main player here but so far, observations have been done mainly during non-natural sleep and at the surface of the brain only. Thankfully, Laura h...
