W HAT unique situation in the human body may result from capillary blood flow shearing across electrically charged semipermeable proteolipidic membranes of abutting endothelial and glial cells in the absence of adequate pericapillary interstitial space in the brain ? A phenomenon known for decades as the blood-brain barrier may be the precocious answer to this question. Only after these specialized membranes appeared could the neuraxis be protected from variations in the extracellular fluid of…

FINE STRUCTURAL STUDIES ON THE VASCULARIZATION OF HETEROLOGOUSLY TRANSPLANTED TUMORS *
TLDR
Two of the four heterologous tumors previously investigated with fluorescent tracers were utilized for electron microscopical investigations, and fine structural changes of vessels observed in the tumors and in controls will be presented briefly.

TLDR
This chapter discusses the development of recent thoughts on intracranial pressure and the blood-brain barrier in Neurobiologists, and some old and new concepts of brain structure.
Increases in spinal fluid osmolarity induced by mannitol
TLDR
Long-term administration of mannitol can induce significant increases in cerebrospinal fluid osmolarity in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage or severe head injury, which may be an undesirable and potentially dangerous effect.
Pathology and Pathogenesis
Effect of nootropil and contrykal on structural changes in the CNS in hypoxic cerebral edema
TLDR
The efficacy of the suggested scheme of treatment is attributed to the normalizing effect of Nootropil on metabolic and intracellular repair processes in neurons and cells belonging to the microcirculatory system and also to the direct action of Contrykal on local capillary permeability factors.
Effect of cerebrospinal fluid shunts on intracranial pressure and on cerebrospinal fluid dynamics
TLDR
The effect of posture on the siphoning action of these longer shunts in the erect, adult patient is a major uncontrollable variable in maintenance of intracranial pressure after shunting and a concept of the hydrocephalus phenomenon is described.
Partial Plasma Exchange Transfusion Imporves Cerebral Hemodynamics in Symptomatic Neonatal Polycythemia
TLDR
It is suggested that neonatal polycythemia/hyperviscosity syndrome may be associated with abnormal cerebral hemodynamics that could improve with partial plasma exchange transfusion.
Factors responsible for the distribution of radioactivity in a mouse glioma and brain after injection of radioiodinated human serum albumin (RIHSA).
TLDR
There was a progressive increase in the extravascular radioactivity of the tumor for at least 24 hr after injection, indicating a high permeability of the blood vessels in the tumor.

The Blood-Brain Barrier: An Expression of the Absence of Interstitial Spaces in Ectodermal Tissue?
TLDR
This investigation of cyst fluids initiated a review of the subject of the blood-brain barrier, which proved so interesting that it has sidetracked the original problem.
AN EXPLANATION OF THE BLOOD‐BRAIN BARRIER PHENOMENON
TLDR
The anatomical substratum for the barrier phenomenon has long been a subject of discussion and in a review of contemporary theories Spatz (1933) found valid arguments to reject all of them but one.
The blood—brain barrier and the extracellular space of brain
TLDR
In the present work, the penetration of 1311, sucrose andp-aminohippurate (PAH) into brain and muscle is studied.

The existence of a blood-brain barrier (BBB) has been discussed for more than 40 years; it has been criticized or even rejected by some investigators, though most have preferred not to adopt a
Changes in the blood-brain barrier after exposure of the brain.
TLDR
These experiments showed that cerebral vessels undergo an increase in permeability to trypan blue when the brain is exposed to air, and Apfelbach, Bonvallet and Le Beau, and Obrador and Pi-Suner failed to observe such an increasein trypanblue permeability in their experiments on cerebral edema resulting from exposure or from other experimental procedures.
Physiological salt solutions for brain surgery; studies of local pH and pial vessel reactions to buffered and unbuffered isotonic solutions.
TLDR
The study of irrigation fluids for use on the exposed brain, which forms the subject of the present report, is a part of a series of investigations on the general problem of the reaction of the brain to exposure which is being carried out under the direction of Professor Wilder Penfield.
SILVER DEPOSITION IN THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM AND THE HEMATOENCEPHALIC BARRIER STUDIED WITH THE ELECTRON MICROSCOPE
TLDR
Two levels of the hematoencephalic barrier were apparently demonstrated in investigations and silver deposition was found in the perivascular spaces in the choroid plexus, area postrema, and in minute quantities in the cerebrum, cerebellum, and most of the medulla.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE BLOOD‐BRAIN BARRIER *
TLDR
Evidence which may be interpreted as indicating a decreased function of the bloodbrain barrier in the immature brain has been summarized and discussed elsewhere and, therefore, only observations of direct bearing on the findings, presented below, will be considered.

TLDR
It has been suggested that there is an additional element in the central nervous system, the ground substance, which is probably of a carbohydrate-protein nature (Hess,51953), and trypan blue, administered intravenously or intraperitoneally, is a valid test substance for the presence or absence of a blood-brain barrier.
Experimental study of the effects of hypothermia on local brain injury
TLDR
Cerebral edema with its relationship to the permeability of the blood-brain barrier and the behavior of the tissue elements has been studied recently by this group and it was found possible to make a highly reproducible brain lesion, the dynamics of which could be followed chronologically.
