Table of Contents

Introduction:Energy Metabolism in the Brain
The Cerebral Glucose-Fatty Acid Cycle: Evolutionary roots, regulation, and (patho)physiological importance
Expression, Regulation and Functional Role of Glucose Transporters (GLUTs) in Brain
Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 Promotes Neuronal Glucose Utilization During Brain Development and Repair Processes
CNS Sensing and Regulation of Peripheral Glucose Levels
Glucose Transporter Protein Syndromes
Glucose, Stress, and Hippocampal Neuronal Vulnerability
Glucose/Mitochondria in Neurological Conditions Energy Utilization in the Ischemic/Reperfused Brain
Diabetes Mellitus and the Central Nervous System
Diabetes, the Brain and Behavior:Is there a biological mechanism underlying the association between diabetes and depression
Schizophrenia and Diabetes
Psychoactive Drugs Affect Glucose Transport and the Regulation of Glucose Metabolism


Regulation of glucose at the biochemical level affects every area of the brain, and has impact from cellular to behavioral brain function. It plays an important role in diseases such as diabetes, stroke, schizophrenia and drug abuse as well as in normal and dysfunctional memory and cognition. This volume represents a thorough examination of all the major issues that are relevant to glucose metabolism by brain cells in relation to disease, combining basic research and clinical findings in a single, indispensable reference.

Key Features

  • Serves as an essential reference on glucose metabolism in the brain
  • Presents authoritative accounts by leading researchers in the field
  • Includes thorough reviews with provocative sections on future directions


Basic scientists and clinical researchers in neuroscience, neurology and biochemistry
