The pathophysiology of secondary brain damage following experimental traumatic brain injury was investigated by measuring local cerebral blood flow (lCBF), local cerebral glucose utilization (lCGU), and activity of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), which is a mitochondrial enzyme of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, in the rat brain after moderate lateral fluid(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is reported to evaluating the corticospinal pathway and improving both cortical excitability and motor function significantly in subjects. According to some previous reports, the maximum voluntary muscle contraction (MVC) of target muscle can reinforce the influence by(More)
The effect of lateral fluid percussion injury on mitochondrial function in the rat brain was investigated by quantitative imaging of changes in the regional activity of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), a mitochondrial enzyme of the tricarboxylic acid cycle for adenosine triphosphate production. Regional SDH was measured in the frontal, parietal, temporal, and(More)
