Learn how you can contribute to ALS research by donating CSF
Many neurological disorders are poorly understood, in large part because researchers have few opportunities to directly study the brain and spinal cord. However, since cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), sometimes referred to simply as spinal fluid, baths the brain and spinal cord, there is much we can learn about diseases such as ALS by studying the CSF. CSF is readily collected via spinal tap – a quick and safe procedure that is easily performed by an experienced neurologist. Watch this video to learn more about how you can help researchers unlock the mysteries of neurological disease and contribute to finding effective treatments for disorders such as ALS.
