A solution in which the concentration of solutes is less than that of the cell -- water can flow freely, so it will flow INTO of the cell (via osmosis) to balance out the concentrations since ions can't flow freely. Cells, especially brain cells and red blood cells, swell under these conditions. RBCs may even burst!
