Brain energy and oxygen metabolism: Emerging role in normal function and disease

Watts, Michelle E.; Pocock, Roger; Claudianos, Charles


Dynamic metabolic changes occurring in neurons are critically important in directing brain plasticity and cognitive function. In other tissue types, disruptions to metabolism and the resultant changes in cellular oxidative state, such as increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) or induction of hypoxia, are associated with cellular stress. In the brain however, where drastic metabolic shifts occur to support physiological processes, subsequent changes to cellular oxidative state and induction of...[Show more]
