  author={Tim David and S. Alzaidi and Hannah Farr},
A non-dimensional representation of both myogenic and metabolic autoregulation coupled with an asymmetric binary tree algorithm simulating the cerebro-vasculature has been developed. Results are presented for an autoregulation algorithm of the cerebro-vasculature downstream of the efferent arteries, in this case the middle cerebral artery. These results indicate that, due to the low pressures found in the arteriolar structure, the myogenic mechanism based on the increased open probability due… CONTINUE READING
