Cholinergic projection from the basal forebrain and cerebral glucose metabolism in rats: a dynamic PET study.

Abstract

To investigate the influence of cholinergic projections from the basal forebrain on cerebral cortex metabolism, we evaluated the cerebral metabolic rate of glucose (CMRGlu) after selective inhibition of cholinergic neurons in the rat basal forebrain using the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex inhibitor 3-bromopyruvic acid (BPA), and compared the results with… (More)
