The variable rate lumbar subarachnoid infusion technique allows rapid quantitative study of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) compartment. Numerous pressure plateaus are studied in a brief time period with a servo-controlled system. The test determines the difference between rates of CSF asorption and formation as a function of pressure. On-line computer data analysis increases experimental efficiency to guarantee statistical significance. Animal and patient data are presented in the report.
