With the recent discovery of lymph vessels in the human brain , never mind the glymphatic and perivascular drainage systems, does anybody truly understand how waste proteins leave the aging brain? And what do pericytes do, exactly? On Monday, October 30, leading international experts on protein clearance in neurodegenerative disease will discuss these questions and more during a daylong conference organized by UCL’s Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre in London (see program ). The meeting is sold out, but anyone can watch it on the UCLTV You Tube Channel , while joining a twitter debate via #UCLDementiaSeminars .
