Promising young faculty joins Scintillon Institute
November 3, 2018
The Scintillon Institute is proud to announce the recent addition to its faculty a leading scientist Dr. Yun Yung, who is an expert on cortical brain development and related neurological disorders, including hydrocephalus.
Hydrocephalus, otherwise known as “water on the brain” is one of the most common neurological disorders in children with an incidence rate of 0.01%, similar to Down’s syndrome. In addition, adults and the elderly can also suffer from different variants of hydrocephalus, particularly in cases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
