Brain metabolism patterns are sensitive to attentional effort associated with a tone recognition task.

Abstract

Using positron emission tomography with the tracer 18-fluoro-D-deoxyglucose, we assessed regional cerebral glucose utilization patterns (rCMRglu) associated with three performance levels in a forced choice, tone recognition task. Four normal subjects responded with one hand when they heard a high-frequency tone (1500 Hz), and with the other hand when they… (More)
