I am starting a 3 year research post at the NMR unit, Institute of
Neurology,
Queen Square. As part of my research, I would like to look at blood
brain
barrier changes in MS more closely. As I have only started my research
project,
I am a relatively ignorant about our current understanding of the
blood brain
barrier, and I was wondering whether anyone would be able to suggest
any good sources of information which would bring me up to date with
regards to our understanding of what constitutes the normal blood
brain barrier, (both structurally and biochemically) and what attempts
have been made for quantifying the permeability of the barrier. I look
forward very much to hearing from you.
