We examine the role of physiological brain barriers in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, and brain trauma. My focus is understanding transport processes at the arachnoid, choroid, and vascular membranes in Alzheimer’s disease. We are characterizing a new transgenic rat model of Alzheimer’s on the structural and gene expression levels, to define the relative activity of each brain barrier component.
