Description

This is a comprehensive tutorial reference to the foundational science and evolving clinical impact of our rapidly expanding understanding of the blood brain and blood-spinal cord brain barrier (BBB/BSCB). This comprehensive reference begins with a detailed introduction to the Anatomy and Physiology of the BBB/BSCB providing a solid foundation for what follows. The next section focuses specifically on neuropharmacology and BBB/BSCB and then to drug delivery including detailed coverage of nanoparticles (risk and potential for drug delivery). The final section covers the effects of drugs and narcotics on the BBB/BSCB and the alteration of the BBB/BSCB in disease states including Alzheimer, Huntington and Parkinson. This will be a definitive reference on our current understanding of the BBB/BSCB and the impact of the BBB/BSCN on the brain and central nervous system in health and disease. This combination on basic science and application to clinical concerns will be of great interest to all neuroscience, clinical neurology, and psychiatric researchers especially those involved in drug delivery.
