Nerve cell metabolism

I need the following clarified if possible

1. What does a nerve cell's metabolism run on (ie. glucose, oxygen, etc)
2. How are those nutrients obtained from the bloodstream?
3. Is there a reserve of those nutrients in the nerve cell that has
to be replenished or is there a continuous transfer from the bloodstream?

Thanks in advance for any help.
