Dear all

I am trying to form a mathematical microstructural mechanical model of the
brain tissue.

To this end I am searching for data on quantitative microscopic tissue
morphology and microanatomy of the brain tissue: fibers orientation,
partial volume (of each tissue), capillary count, etc.
I am also looking for data on the mechanical properties of the different
"building blocks" of the tissue: Nerve fibres, Glia cells, Blood vessels,etc.

Therefor I will be very grateful to get any kind of direction to
information on these topics (even very old ones).
I also would like to ask for suggestions to any news gropes, mailing lists
or web links that could be relevant for these subjects.

Thanks in advance for the help.
I will summaries and post the answers
