Glucose availability and the electrophysiology of the human visual system.

Abstract

Glucose is a main energy source to neurons in brain (with limited storage capability) and retina (where it is stored in glial Müller cells and supplied upon demand). Glucose availability and visual function are related. Human positron emission tomography studies indicate increased blood flow and glucose metabolic rate in primary visual cortex during… (More)
