2020 NeuroImage  
In addition, the current study assessed whether time-of-day effects were driven by changes to extracellular space, by including estimations of non-Gaussian diffusion metrics obtained from diffusion kurtosis  ...  These results suggest that an increase in the intra-axonal space relative to the extra-axonal volume underlies time-of-day effects in human white matter, which is in line with activity-induced reductions  ...  We thank Lise-Linn Løkken, Taran Blakstvedt and Yvonne Kuiper for assistance with data acquisition.  ...

Erin L. Boespflug, Jeffrey J. Iliff
2018 Biological Psychiatry  
These changes may underlie the diurnal fluctuations in interstitial and CSF Aβ levels observed in both the rodent and human.  ...  Glymphatic function is primarily a feature of the sleeping, rather than the waking brain, and is slowed in the aging and post-traumatic brain.  ...  If validated in human subjects, then sleep-wake changes in the dimensions of the brain extracellular space will have important implications not only for the clearance of interstitial solutes such as Aβ  ...

2017 Journal of Neuroscience Research  
In particular, quantitative MRI methods have the potential to distinguish and evaluate the complex collection of neurobiological responses to TBI arising from pathology, neuroprotection, and recovery.  ...  Although well-established approaches such as diffusion tensor imaging are known to be highly sensitive to changes in the tissue environment, more advanced dMRI techniques have been developed that may offer  ...  These models directly relate the MRI signal for each DWI to the diffusion weighting (i.e., b-value in seconds per millimeter squared) and the orientation of the applied diffusion sensitizing gradients,  ...

2007 Cerebral Cortex  
FA appears to be more sensitive than volume loss to changes in normal appearing tissue, and these FA changes may actually precede white matter atrophy in some brain areas.  ...  Confounding these results are imaging studies demonstrating age-related white matter atrophy in some areas displaying altered FA, suggesting changes in diffusion may be simply an epiphenomenon of tissue  ...  White matter has traditionally been characterized in human studies using conventional clinical MRI sequences, such as T 1and T 2 -weighted images.  ...

We sort existing models into broad categories by anatomical function: Perivascular flow, transport in brain parenchyma, interfaces to perivascular spaces, efflux routes, and links to neuronal activity.  ...  Needs and opportunities for future work are highlighted wherever possible; new models, expanded models, and novel experiments to inform models could all have tremendous value for advancing the field.  ...  One study in human brain was not able to detect changes in the mean diffusivity between wakefulness and sleep after sleep deprivation, thereby not corroborating extracellular space volume changes [46]  ...
