A Brief Review of Recent Discoveries in Human Anatomy.

QJM 2018 Oct 18. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

Computational Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Division, National Brain Research Centre (NBRC), Manesar, Haryana, India.

In the last few years, a cluster of anatomical discoveries has been reported which overturned the long existing dogmas about the structure and function of human body. First to come was the discovery that established the existence of a lymphatic system pertaining to the central nervous system (CNS). CNS was believed to be anatomically immune privileged owing to the absence of any lymphatics and presence of the blood-brain barrier around it, but latest research has established beyond any reasonable doubt that true lymphatic channels carry immune cells in meninges thus challenging the existing theory.
