Influence of blood viscosity to cerebral blood flow in older humans compared to young subjects.


OBJECTIVE Since blood viscosity (BV) is one of the most important factors determining blood flow, this study aimed to investigate the possible correlation between increased blood viscosity and reduction of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in healthy ageing. METHODS Male subjects were distributed in two groups: "young", aged 20-30 (27 volunteers), or… (More)
