A Microcalorimetric Study of Turtle Cortical Slices: Insights into Brain Metabolic Depression

In previous papers, we have examined turtle cortical neurons in vitro for mechanisms of anoxic metabolic depression ('channel arrest' and changes in electrical parameters). Negative results prompted the current study with the aim of examining more closely the energy profile and metabolism of turtle cortical slices. Calorimetry is used to measure heat… (More)
