PDE Anlysis of the Blood Brain Barrier
Method of Lines in R
- Analyze parameters related to blood brain barrier permeability and diffusivity.
- Determine the rate of diffusion across membranes and tissue with spatiotemporal models.
- Solve numerical solutions using the R graphics utilities.
Aims and Scope
This book discusses the computer-based implementation of prototype partial differential equation models for the dynamics of mass transfer across the blood brain barrier. The numerical algorithm for the solution of PDE models is termed the method of lines. Numerical and graphical output from this model is presented with a discussion of possible application to neurodynamics.
