I would like to wish you and your entire family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We celebrate this Great Holiday of the Birth of Our Lord and Saviour with Joy and Thanksgiving. It is a local holiday for us because Jesus Christ (Emmanuel – Mmanụ Elu – someone from Heaven) was born at Nazareth called Naze, Owere (Ana e zee ụta ọha – land where He dodged the arrow of the leaders, Owe Eri – Leaders from Time Immemorial – Jerusalem City of King David – iyi erusalam, Di wu edo – evil should not touch me, city of a Man fair in complexion) from the Sons of Jesse – ji isi ọsa – heads of the people OR na-eje amana eze – Njemanze Royal dynasty of Owere of Amawọm (Ama Owe m – compound of My leader – King David).

Jesus worked at Ekeọnụwa – Eke Ọ nụ waa osisi  – Eke market place where He carved wood]. Eke – e kee – Day of Resurrection; Orie – Day He was offered to Almighty God, Afọ – Day of His Birth; Nkwọ – Day of His Baptism. The Four Mysteries celebrated on Four Market Days in Igbo land or Ancient Israel – Ị sara Eli – you answered the Most High.

We will share with you an even greater gift of knowledge of advanced science in this Christmas. One of the Greatest Debates in Neuroscience is on the Third Circulation: the Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow in the Brain. The big question was: which pump moves CSF in the brain? The Great Scientists: Cushing, Dandy and others were of the view that it was the vascular pulsation that moves the two thalami squeezing the CSF within the Third Ventricle and thereby moving the CSF flow? While Bering and others said, it was the movement of the Choroid Plexus in the lateral ventricles in the brain. Well the proof of either was lacking until 1989, when we settled that aspect of the Great Debate, using Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology to demonstrate that there is the existence of the Thalamic Pump! We showed how the CSF moves in Systole and Diastole in the Brain for the First Time in World literature. This was a great accomplishment for neuroscience and hence was one of the best works of the year. Though the debate on the CSF circulation continues on other issues. Please read and see how the CSF moves in your brain in [Njemanze PC, Beck OJ (1989) MR-gated intracranial CSF dynamics: evaluation of CSF pulsatile flow, AJNR American Journal of Neuroradiology, 10 (1), 77-80]. This is the basis of the clinical diagnostic test called CSF dynamics to examine patients with hydrocephalus – water accumulation in the brain ventricles.
