Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography can map the changes in blood velocity that result from stenosis or occlusion of the middle cerebral artery. To evaluate patterns of collateral blood flow in disease of the middle cerebral artery stem, we used both cerebral angiography and transcranial Doppler ultrasonography to study the systolic blood velocities in both(More)
Unilateral cerebral ischaemia was induced in 18-month-old Long-Evans rats by injection of 2,000 labelled microspheres (phi 50 microns) into the carotid blood stream. This results in an ipsilateral decrease in cerebral blood flow, development of severe oedema and modifications of glucose uptake and consumption. Furthermore, this ischaemia led to a(More)
Rats were injected with iodoamphetamine synthesized and labeled with 125I or with 125I- isopropyliodoamphetamine , a molecule of established value for the determination of local cerebral blood flow. The blood kinetics, tissue distribution, and brain uptake index for each tracer exhibited practically no differences. Autoradiographic quantification of the(More)
The effects of ageing in normal and pathological rats were studied. Learning (spatio-temporal test) was measured simultaneously with the local cerebral blood flow, determined by a diffusible indicator (iodoantipyrine) and with the uptake and consumption of glucose, determined by the deoxyglucose. Normal ageing disturbs the learning with a decrease in(More)
Transient ischemia results in changes in the cerebral blood flow at the level of microinfarcts, enzymatic and metabolic changes and the development of a cerebral edema; all these disorders regress in the week following ischemia. Besides, the observed functional disorders disappear as the cerebral edema regresses. The brain functional activity is protected(More)
Unilateral microemboli were formed in the brains of Long Evans rats by means of an intracarotid injection of microspheres (50 mu). This embolization resulted in a decrease in blood flow, severe cerebral oedema and a modification of glucose uptake. Furthermore, these microemboli affected a conditioned avoidance response. Naftidrofuryl enabled a better(More)
Among the iodophenylalkylamines studied and labelled with iodine 125 or iodine 123, N-isopropyl-iodo-amphetamin (IAMP) was selected and proposed as tracer for blood flow, a "chemical embolus" having almost 100% extraction in the brain. A new way of obtaining N-isopropyl-p-iodo-amphetamin is proposed and the easily-applied exchange reaction with iodine 125(More)
In the present work, a study of the number of functional receptors has been made with 3HQNB given to resting awaken animals during a learning process. Ageing leads to a decrease in the ability of learning associated with an increase in the number of large movements. The number of cholinergic receptors is also reducel if we compare 22 month old animals with(More)
