Blood Flow and Temperature of the Brain

  • Stanislav Reinis
  • Jerome M. Goldman


The brain is greatly dependent upon the permanent availability of oxygen and glucose, because its own energy stores are low. This means that there must be a steady, uninterrupted flow of blood through the brain and that an increase in the metabolic rate within an area requires a rapid adaptation of the regional blood flow.
