The popular board game Operation entails the treatment of, amongst many other ersatz medical conditions, ?water on the knee,? cleverly rendered as a bucket to be withdrawn from the knee of the plastic ?patient? using tweezers. However, to the dismay of many seven-year old budding neuropsychologists, there was no ailment involving the most important part of the body: the brain. Perhaps that bucket should have been reserved for a niche in the patient's head instead of his knee, since the condition colloquially-termed ?water on the brain,? or hydrocephalus, is not only more detrimental to the overall functioning of an individual than knee-pain, but, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, affects one of every 500 children born and is the leading cause for childhood brain surgery (2008).
