  2. Neurons

    by , 05-29-2008 at 08:07 PM
    A few Key points about neuro anatomy that may support the CNS burnout theory (Central Fatigue)

    1. Neurons do not store their own glycogen. Their support cells know as glial cells store glycogen and directly shuttle sugars to the neurons.

    2. There are about 4-10 times as many glial cells as there are neurons in the brain. Neurons are so highly specialized that they have lost the ability to maintain themselves.

    3. Neurons at any one time have about 10 times ...

  5. My First Blog Entry

    by , 04-20-2008 at 08:43 PM
    Well since this is my first blog entry I am going to blog about a subject near and dear to me, reading scientific literature.

    Note: if you want to skip to the condensed version skip down to the last bold point.

    You see many people posting up studies to prove or disprove a particular point. This is good, when done correctly. Just like any other type of information, scientific studies can be spun, or misinterpreted.

    How do I begin my ...
