This chapter concerns the blood circulation inside the intact skull. The findings regarding blood circulation and volume in the patients with open skulls need to be related to the normal case of closed skulls. The author carries out experiments in the dog with particular focus on venous blood flow. The author concludes that venous blood flow inside the closed skull is under higher pressure than elsewhere in the body. Experiments in the dog also demonstrate that arterial blood flow in the brain shows variations similar to those in other body parts.
