LONDON: The coordination between neuronal activity and brain oxygenation is different in older individuals, according to researchers studying brain activity.
The findings of the study were published in Brain Research Bulletin by scientists from Lancaster University, UK and the University Medical Centre in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Since the brain consumes up to 20 per cent of the body’s energy, the cardiovascular system and the brain must cooperate closely to guarantee that each component of the brain receives an adequate supply of energy. Numerous “neurovascular units” tasked with feeding the neurons accomplish this.
It has never been possible to non-invasively record the activity of these neurovascular units in a living human, but this has now been accomplished utilizing a variety of measurement techniques and cutting-edge processing tools created at Lancaster University.
