The International School of Cerebral Circulation covers the following study topics in the field of ‘Pathophysiology of Cerebral Hemodynamic
– peculiarities of the anatomical substrates of intracranial vessels (macro and micro circulation)
– nerve structures and related neurotransmitters involved in intracranial blood circulation
– hemodynamic under normal and pathological conditions
– interrelationships between nervous tissue, cerebral blood circulation and cerebrospinal fluid
production and circulation
– control mechanisms governing the regulation of cerebral blood circulation
– mathematical modelling to quantify and isolate the various phenomena of this biological system
as a complex system.
The school’s programme is intended to serve as a basis for the interpretation of the various
pathological states in order to obtain a correct diagnosis of cerebrovascular diseases. The study will also include the means of prevention of cerebrovascular diseases. It is the school’s intention to create a place for sharing knowledge among scholars. The school proposes the creation of a permanent international reference institution, possibly supported by an appropriate network of databases and retrieval services. A permanent educational institution is also one of the school’s main objectives. Its task will consist of organising lectures, seminars, and meetings, as well as updating and enhancing technologies.
