Unlocking the Energy Dynamics of Executive Functioning: Linking Executive Functioning to Brain Glycogen.

Past work suggests that executive functioning relies on glucose as a depletable energy, such that executive functioning uses a relatively large amount of glucose and is impaired when glucose is low. Glucose from the bloodstream is one energy source for the brain, and glucose stored in the brain as glycogen is another. A review of the literature on glycogen… CONTINUE READING
