Calculation of Concentration Profiles of Excess Acid in Human Brain Tissue During Conditions of Partial Anoxia
The purpose of this paper is to present the initial preliminary results of a theoretical attempt to obtain a better understanding of the distribution of lactic and pyruvic acid in cerebral cortex during conditions of partial anoxia and consequent anerobic glycolysis.
