Research focus on pathophysiological, diagnostic and clinical aspects of Hydrocephalus, specifically Normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), other CSF dynamic and neurodegenerative CNS disorders.
The thesis, “White matter pathology in normal pressure hydrocephalus and subcortical arteriosclerotic encephalopathy. Clinical, CSF and MRI aspects” was defended in 2001 and followed by a year as post-doc at UC Davis, California.
Presently heading the Hydrocephalus research unit, Sahlgrenska Academy/Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

Several papers on CSF biomarkers and MR/neuroimaging changes characterising NPH and different neurodegenerative disorders such as subcortical vascular dementia have been published. Several studies have described pathophysiological, clinical, diagnostic and predictive aspects of NPH and associated co-morbidities. Recent studies have addressed the use CSF biochemical and MR perfusion methods for prediction of outcome after shunt therapy in NPH and the relationship to cerebrovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
34 peer review published papers.
