What research is being done?

Current research funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke includes studies to better understand the genetic factors responsible for the malformation (such as in the P13K-AKT signaling pathway that cause brain overgrowth), and factors that influence the development, progression, and relief of symptoms among people with syringomyelia, including those with Chiari I malformations. By studying individuals who either have syringomyelia or are at risk of developing it, researchers hope to gain informaton that may allow doctors to provide more accurate recommendations regarding surgical or non-surgical treatment.
