Dr. Sherwin revisits the control center for glucose homeostasis within the brain, as proposed one and a half centuries ago. Fast forward to present day for an intellectual discussion on the ventromedial hypothalamus’ role in glucose counterregulation. This mechanism paints the picture of hypoglycemia-induced adaptations in brain fuel metabolism as it coalesces into homeostasis across the blood-brain barrier. Finally, he will go back to Claude Bernard’s original idea and present data suggesting insulin in the brain may contribute to type 2 diabetes, eating behavior and cognitive function.
