In this presentation, cerebral blood flow (CBF) is modeled using a mathematical model, a statistical model and numerical examples. In the mathematical model, blood flow is described using Navier-Stokes equations. In the statistical model, the experiments or the data measurement process is simulated and to study how the noise in the measurements affects the ability to estimate the parameters, numerical examples are formulated in which the elasticity of the artery is considered to have a non homogeneous profile.
