Changes in CSF Flow and Extracellular Space in the Developing Rat
The effect of bulk flow of cerebrospinal fluid on the distribution of substances in the central nervous system has been a problem appreciated especially by those who have attempted to quantify the interstitial volume of the brain. The implications of this so-called “CSF sink” effect, particularly with regard to the measurement of brain extracellular space, have been treated thoroughly in reviews by Davson (1965) and by Woodbury (1967).
