    Helen Williams
    Med Hypotheses 70:743-7. 2008
    ..When venous pressure is only slightly elevated CSF will accumulate and the manifestations of ischaemia may be less apparent, although ischaemia will be a feature of all instances of pathologically raised CNS pressure...

    Helen Williams
    Med Hypotheses 70:1108-11. 2008
    ..This results in an increase in head circumference following surgery. Males are susceptible to autism where head growth is accelerated in early childhood. This is because they have a larger average head size...
