Regional Differences in Transport of Substances out of the Cerebrospinal Fluid
Feldberg and Fleischhauer (1960) have found that on perfusion of the cerebral ventricles with bromophenol blue the uptake of dye varies in different regions of the ventricular walls. These studies, the results of which agreed with observations on the uptake of histamine from the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into the brain tissue (Draskoci, Feldberg, Fleischhauer & Haranath, 1960) were carried out with the naked eye because for technical reasons it was impossible to detect the bromophenol blue at the cellular level.
