Study cohort is comprised of healthy children, ages 2yrs - 8yrs, who are already undergoing a lumbar puncture procedure at New York Presbyterian Hospital for clinical or diagnostic purposes.
Other: Group 1
Collecting a small amount of cerebrospinal fluid (5 mL) from healthy children, ages 2 yrs - 8 yrs, who are already undergoing a lumbar puncture procedure at New York Presbyterian Hospital for clinical or diagnostic purposes.
- Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) [ Time Frame: 1 time point (once) ]The primary study endpoint is the metabolic profiling of 32 samples of cerebrospinal fluid from healthy subjects, in comparison to 32 samples of CSF from children with LINCL, to determine whether there are biomarkers found in the cerebrospinal fluid that are associated with LINCL.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
