The method is called "microdialysis" and it works almost exactly equal
as a common dialysis through semipermeant membranes. If you want to know

Federico Dajas   fdajas at

They are specialized neuroscientists working on the microdialysis field.
They can talk to you about methodology and can recommend you even more
specialized contacts in your country.
