  1. MET was performed 3 days after 2VO or sham surgery and on the sixth week of exercise to determine the appropriate exercise training for the duration of the investigation. Sham-Ex, sham surgery exercised group (n = 12); 2VO-Ex, chronic cerebral hypoperfusion exercised group (n = 15). Values represent the mean ± SEM
