Pipeline-like Vessels in the Brain

The lymphatic system is our body''s ''sewerage system''. It maintains fluid levels in our body tissues by removing all fluids that leak out of our blood vessels. The lymphatic system is important for the optimal functioning of our general and specific immune responses. Recent research at the National Institutes of Health found that the brain is draining out fluids through vessels. The study found pipeline-like vessels in the dura region of the brain.
