About this book

Introduction

This book describes the latest findings on the control of the fluid environment of the eye and the brain. The eye is considered from its multiple interfaces. Carbonic anhydrase, which forms a bridge between the eye and CSF, and the secretion and development of its drainage is reviewed. The blood-brain barrier is considered from the cerebral capillary, and recent findings with homologous molecules refute the earlier studies with 'foreign' tracers. A final chapter gives a fascinating glimpse of the future with a description of the latest imaging techniques used in neurological diagnosis.
