Cajal course : Brain Homeostasis and Neurovascular Coupling

dimanche 19 mai 2019 - dimanche 2 juin 2019

The Neurovascular unit (NVU) is a physiological entity that consists of fine-tuned interactions between cerebral blood vessels, pericytes, astrocytes, immune cells and neurons in order to maintain brain homeostasis. The NVU contributes to brain vessel properties such as blood-brain barrier (BBB) and cerebral blood flow regulation. Several brain disorders are associated with NVU dysfunction. There have been several recent advances in knowledge and in the technologies available to study the NVU. This advanced course will allow students to gain basic knowledge and hands-on experience with various techniques, such as in vivo/ex vivo high-resolution imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, brain vascular pathology rodent models and in vitro BBB models.
