Brain Tissue Oxygen: In Vivo Monitoring with Carbon Paste Electrodes

  title={Brain Tissue Oxygen: In Vivo Monitoring with Carbon Paste Electrodes},
  author={Fiachra B. Bolger and John P. Lowry},
In this communication we review selected experiments involving the use of carbon paste electrodes (CPEs) to monitor and measure brain tissue O2 levels in awake freely-moving animals. Simultaneous measurements of rCBF were performed using the H2 clearance technique. Voltammetric techniques used include both differential pulse (O2) and constant potential amperometry (rCBF). Mild hypoxia and hyperoxia produced rapid changes (decrease and increase respectively) in the in vivo O2 signal. Neuronal… CONTINUE READING
