Blockade \Block*ade"\, n. [Cf. It. bloccata. See Block, v. t.
1. The shutting up of a place by troops or ships, with the
purpose of preventing ingress or egress, or the reception
of supplies; as, the blockade of the ports of an enemy.
Note: Blockade is now usually applied to an investment with
ships or vessels, while siege is used of an investment
by land forces. To constitute a blockade, the investing
power must be able to apply its force to every point of
practicable access, so as to render it dangerous to
attempt to enter; and there is no blockade of that port
where its force can not be brought to bear. --Kent.
2. An obstruction to passage.
3. (physiology) interference with transmission of a
physiological signal, or a physiological reaction.
