Levels of ATP are near normal in the cockroach nerve cord when hypoxia is sufficient to cause coma as determined by behavioral observations and nerve cord electrical activity. During anoxia the major change in ATP occurs after loss of measurable nerve activity. High glycogen levels and reduced energy demands due to coma may contribute to the resistance to(More)
Intraocular injections of the neuroexcitatory toxin, kainic acid, did not alter the output of the retinal ganglion cells, as determined by the rate of glucose use in the stratum griseum superficialis of the superior colliculus. However, significant differences were observed in cholinergic interactions of the ganglion cells after kainic acid treatment.(More)
