A study of the brainstem of the rat during horizontal nystagmus using the quantitative 2-deoxy-D-glucose technique reflected changes in the functional activity of cell groups based on their glucose utilization rates. Horizontal nystagmus was induced by unilateral crista ampullectomy of the horizontal canal. Comparisons of glucose utilization rates were made between experimental and control groups as well as from side to side within each group. There was a decrease of the ipsilateral medial and… CONTINUE READING
