A new study reports amyloid beta induces a strong inflammatory response, destroying the blood-CSF barrier.
Insulin binding receptors are predominantly located in the microvessels within the blood-brain barrier. In patients with Alzheimer's, the abundance of these receptors is decreased. This decrease could lead to the loss of insulin response in the Alzheimer's brain.
Researchers have discovered how the parasite Toxoplasma gondii is able to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Researchers report they have identified a new component of the biological mechanism which controls blood flow in the brain.
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.
Researchers are looking at whether short, daily bouts of limb compression can help to reduce dementia.
Researchers reveal how autonomic neurons and blood vessels come together to form the neurovascular unit.
Exposure to everyday stressors may result in impairments in endothelial function for patients with major depressive disorder. The findings reveal a possible reason for the association between stress, depression and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Researchers successfully grew adult human neurons from tissue donated from surgery patients. The researchers were able to identify at least 5 brain cell types and the potential proteins each cell could make.
Mini-brains that are able to grow blood vessels are paramount for future investigation of neurological disorders, researchers report.
Researchers discover key elements associated with tumor cells binding to blood vessels. The findings could help develop new treatments to halt the development of brain tumors.
