Physiological role for water channels in the brain identified
[Announced 6 November 2003]

Researchers at the Centre for Molecular Biology and Neuroscience (CMBN) has published a study that identifies a physiological role for the brain's water channels, previously known to be involved in the pathophysiology of brain edema (Amiry-Moghaddam et al., PNAS February 2003). The data indicate that water channels play a permissive role in the handling of the K+ ions that are released from active neurons.
