Eicosanoids, Peptides and Amines and the Cerebral Blood Vessels

  • G. Feuerstein


The brain, like every other organ, is dependent on continuous blood flow to maintain its functions. However, the brain is unique among the organs in its tight relationships between blood flow, oxygen and glucose metabolism and neuronal activity. Of primary importance in this regard are ionic species and metabolic products such as potassium, calcium, carbon dioxide and lactate which in spite of careful regulation might also be subjected to rapid and profound fluctuations.
