I urge you to read about the glymphatic system!

The glymphatic system is thought to be the sewage plumbing of the brain, this have years described but recently has showed importance , since it explains somehow the beta amyloid protein (Parkinson's) are being discarded, and the lewy bodies (Alzheimer's) as well and some how explains how the dementia is related to the normal tension hidrochepalus, an issue that wasn't clearly explained before. 

A new chapter for medicine and neurosurgery and neurology would be written!

I do agree. The Glymphatic system is really an exciting new finding. I can recommend the following article, unfortunately not available for free: The Glymphatic System: A Beginner's Guide by Jessen NA et al. published in Neurochem Res. 2015 40(12):2583-99.
