By simulating patterns of microvasculature cell growth and compare the results with real networks grown in lab, researchers hope to direct how they grow into the tiny blood vessels that feed the brain and help people regain functions lost to stroke and disease.
Researchers report they have identified a new component of the biological mechanism which controls blood flow in the brain.
Researchers reveal how autonomic neurons and blood vessels come together to form the neurovascular unit.
Researchers are looking at whether short, daily bouts of limb compression can help to reduce dementia.
A new study reports amyloid beta induces a strong inflammatory response, destroying the blood-CSF barrier.
A new study reports statins can protect blood vessels from a substance that causes inflammation.
Researchers have discovered how the parasite Toxoplasma gondii is able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
According to a new study, researchers have discovered a new way to open the blood-brain barrier. The findings have implications for delivering medications to treat brain diseases and cancers.
According to a new study, brain cells lining blood vessels produce a protein that impairs neuronal firing in the hippocampus during an antiviral immune response.
