The Cerebral Circulation

Textbook Title: The Cerebral Circulation

Textbook Description:
This free online etextbook describes the structural and functional properties of the cerebral circulation that are unique to the brain, an organ with high metabolic demands, and the need for tight water and ion homeostasis. The textbook covers how autoregulation is pronounced in the brain, with myogenic, metabolic, and neurogenic mechanisms contributing to maintain relatively constant blood flow during both increases and decreases in pressure.
