Old (Left) and New (Right)

With a hat-tip to Malcolm Pollack, who hat-tipped JK, who found the article:
* Vessels directly connecting brain, lymphatic system exist despite decades of doctrine that they don't

* Finding may have substantial implications for major neurological diseases

* Game-changing discovery opens new areas of research, transforms existing ones

* Major gap in understanding of the human body revealed

* 'They'll have to change the textbooks'
Or so say Jonathan Kipnis, Antoine Louveau, Kevin Lee, et al., of the University of Virginia Health System, in "Missing link found between brain, immune system - with major disease implications," as provided by Eureka Alert.

Read the surprising results!
