What is Neurophysiological Imaging and Modeling?

Neurohydrodynamics is a division of neural engineering that investigates the hydrodynamics of the neurological system in health and disease. It applies engineering principles and design concepts to neural engineering to help close the gap between fluid mechanics and neurosurgical and neurological medicine. Neurohydrodynamics combines fluid mechanics principles with neuroscience to help improve neurological disorder healthcare in terms of medical diagnosis, monitoring, and therapy.
