Studies in humans use blood lactate to determine the degree of the exercise intensity, suggesting that exercise with elevated blood lactate concentrations results in increased BDNF plasma concentrations. However, it is not clear if lactate per se or rather other mechanisms are responsible for changes in blood BDNF concentrations. The lactate clamp method at rest is an appropriate method to examine physiological responses of lactate on the human organism without the effects of exercise. Eight… CONTINUE READING
