Cover Story

The study of brain mitochondrial activity and regulation became an important step to fully understand brain functioning in general and the central control of the body energy balance in particular. When studying mitochondrial functions in the brain, however, discrepant results might be obtained, depending on the experimental approaches. In this study, the authors addressed this issue by directly comparing the procedures used in two studies. The results provide converging anatomical and biochemical evidence that functional CB1 receptors are located at brain mitochondria, though at low levels.
