Vasomotion Drives Periarterial Drainage of Aβ from the Brain

Neuron. 2020 Feb 5;105(3):400-401. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2020.01.011.


In this issue of Neuron, van Veluw et al. (2020) show that elimination of solutes from the brain along arterial walls is driven by low-frequency arteriolar oscillations and suggest that age-related reduction of this vasomotion may contribute to impaired clearance of Aβ.
