Above a certain level of cerebral activation the brain increases its uptake of glucose more than that of O(2), i.e., the cerebral metabolic ratio of O(2)/(glucose + 12 lactate) decreases. This study quantified such surplus brain uptake of carbohydrate relative to O(2) in eight healthy males who performed exhaustive exercise. The arterial-venous differences over the brain for O(2), glucose, and lactate were integrated to calculate the surplus cerebral uptake of glucose equivalents. To evaluate… CONTINUE READING
