Three weeks of hypoxic exposure results in a spectrum of systemic physiological and local brain tissue adaptations. Cytochrome oxidase histochemistry was used as an indicator of changes in energy demand in response to hypoxia. We found overall cytochrome oxidase activity decreased in hypoxic adapted rats as compared to normoxic control rats. Some regions… CONTINUE READING
