Interdependence of Capillary Flow and Regional Blood Flow of the Brain
The conventional methods of blood flow measurement can be applied to the determination of blood flow through larger cerebral regions. They cannot be used, however, for measurements in the capillary range. Insight into the capillary range of the brain can be obtained by microflow measurements done with electrochemically generated hydrogen pulses according to Stosseck and Lübbers (4).
