The Nedergaard group is interested in the function of glial cells in the CNS, and the involvement of astrocytes in several neurological diseases.

The Nedergaard group have established techniques to allow macroscopic fluorescent optical imaging of perivascular glymphatic transport that will be utilised in order to determine whether SVD results from pathological suppression of perivascular glymphatic fluid transport.
