Term: Glucose
Definition (Myers): The form of sugar that circulates in the blood and provides the major source of energy for body tissues (when its level is low, we feel hunger) 4
Definition (alternative): Glucose is a primary source of energy for the brain, and hence its availability influences psychological processes. When glucose is low, psychological processes requiring mental effort (e.g., self-control, effortful decision-making) are impaired. 5
