The brain vasculature, especially capillaries, may function in a very dynamic fashion under neuroendocrine control to regulate the internal environment of the brain. This is exemplified by new observations on the regulation of brain water permeability using the tracer H215O in vivo in adult rhesus monkeys. These studies reveal that brain water permeability… CONTINUE READING
