THE [14C]DEOXYGLUCOSE METHOD FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF LOCAL CEREBRAL GLUCOSE UTILIZATION: THEORY, PROCEDURE, AND NORMAL VALUES IN THE CONSCIOUS AND ANESTHETIZED ALBINO RAT 1
Abstract— A method has been developed for the simultaneous measurement of the rates of glucose consumption in the various structural and functional components of the brain in vivo. The method can beExpand

Graphical Evaluation of Blood-to-Brain Transfer Constants from Multiple-Time Uptake Data
TLDR
A theoretical model of blood–brain exchange is developed and a procedure is derived that can be used for graphing multiple-time tissue uptake data and determining whether a unidirectional transfer process was dominant during part or all of the experimental period. Expand

Random walk with persistence and external bias
The partial differential equation of the random walk problem with persistence of direction and external bias is derived. By persistence of direction or internal bias we mean that the probability aExpand

Drainage of interstitial fluid from different regions of rat brain.
Studies were carried out in anesthetized rats comparing dynamics and pathways of interstitial fluid (ISF) drainage from different regions of brain. Rates of drainage from brain and flow intoExpand

Efflux of radiolabeled polyethylene glycols and albumin from rat brain.
Experiments were carried out to evaluate the role of convection in the removal of large molecules from brain interstitial fluid. Radiolabeled test compounds were injected into the caudate nucleus ofExpand

Transport of α-Aminoisobutyric Acid across Brain Capillary and Cellular Membranes
The transport of α-aminoisobutyric acid (AIB), N-methyl-AIB (MeAIB), and diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA) from blood to brain was measured over different experimental periods in eightExpand

The flow of solute and solvent across a two-membrane system.
Abstract Equations are derived, utilizing the methods of irreversible thermodynamics, for the steady state flow of solvent and a single, neutral solute across a simple, non-homogeneous membraneExpand
