Una barrera entre el cerebro y los vasos sanguíneos, que evita la entrada hacia el cerebro de la mayoría de sustancias. Moléculas como la glucosa que son vitales para el funcionamiento del cerebro pueden cruzar la barrera hematoencefálica, junto con otras sustancias como las moléculas liposolubles (por ejemplo algunas drogas
Arielle Hogan received a B.S. in Biology and a B.A. in French from the University of Virginia. She is now pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience in the NSIDP program at UCLA. Her research focuses on CNS injury and neural repair. Specifically, she is researching the differential intrinsic transcriptional programs that allow for PNS regeneration and investigating how these transcriptional programs can be induced in models of CNS injury to promote regeneration. She also enjoys learning about biomechatronics and brain-machine interface (BMI), as well as participating in science outreach and teaching. Outside of the lab, she spends time practicing her French, playing basketball, watching movies (even the bad ones), and traveling.
