Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The purpose of this study is to expand biobanking to neurosurgical disorders where similar protocols do not exist in the institution (e.g., neurovascular disease) and complement existing biobanking protocols where they do exist (e.g., neuro-oncology, skull base tumors, degenerative spine).

The purpose of this study is to collect data to objectively monitor the clinical outcomes of patients following CSF shunting for the treatment of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus in order to optimize the surgical care of patients with this disease.
Open for enrollment
The purpose of this study is to collect and store cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)from patients with normal CSF. This stored CSF will be used in the future as a culture media to better understand how therapeutic cells delivered into the CSF will behave.
We are doing this research study to develop and test the effectiveness of a new imaging technique called magnetic resonance elastography (MRE). This technique measures the stiffness (mechanical properties) of the brain and cerebral spinal fluid.
The purpose of this study is to determine if cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme family variants alter the body's metabolism of nimodipine after Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (aSAH), and if actual levels of nimodipine correlate with clinical events and patient outcomes.
The purpose of this study is to establish a prospective, standardized data collection for the patients who undergo surgical treatment of progressive post-hemorrhagic hydrocephalus in neonates with the focus on comparing neuroendoscopic lavage (NEL) with other standard treatment options such as external ventricular drainage (EVD), ventricular access device (VAD) and ventricular subgaleal shunt (VSGS).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate changes in CSF dynamics (e.g., velocity, flow rate) between patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus and healthy controls, as well as patients with other dementia disorders.
