Abstract

The role of lactate in the brain has been controversial. In this issue, Mächler et al. (2015) present data from in vivo experiments suggesting that there is a downward gradient of lactate in the brain. They provide a mechanistic basis for the proposed export of lactate from astrocytes to neurons.
