The brain has a high blood now to meet its high obligatory requirement for glucose as a metabolic fuel. Indeed, glucose requirement and blood flow are directly coupled so that the increased metabolic rate during enhanced functional activity of a particular cortical area is associated with increased blood flow. Here a brief review will be given of the most important methods that can be used for the study of cerebral blood flow in human subjects.
