Blood-Brain Barrier Dysfunction as an Early Driver of Dementia
The blood-brain barrier surrounds blood vessels in the brain, enforcing restrictions on the passage of molecules and cells between brain and blood supply. Like all bodily systems, the blood-brain barrier breaks down with aging, yet another consequence of rising levels of cellular damage and disarray. The passage of inappropriate cells and molecules into the brain is thought to cause a range of issues, but, as is the case for all aspects of the biochemistry of the brain, this is a very complex environment and set of processes. Firm answers are ever elusive, and a great deal of the fine detail of the aging of the brain has y...
