[Local brain consumption of glucose during waking and slow wave sleep in the cat].

Abstract

Local cerebral glucose utilization (LCGU) was measured during spontaneous waking and slow wave sleep (SWS) by adaptation of the [14C] deoxyglucose method to the unrestrained Cat. During waking LCGU ranges from 12 micromoles. 100g-1.mn-1 for white matter to 113 for the inferior colliculus. During SWS most regions exhibit higher levels of LCGU. Thus it… (More)
