Abstract / short description:
Effect of brain insulin action on pancreatic insulin secretion in humans. Insulin action in the brain is measured by intranasal insulin application and magnetic resonance imaging. Insulin secretion is measured by hyperglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp. The hypothesis will be tested that insulin resistance of the brain is associated with insulin secretion.
