The difference in ischemic tolerance between the retina and cerebral cortex may be attributable to a difference in glutamate release during ischemia. Glutamate release in the retina and the cerebral cortex was compared in rats. A dialysis electrode for real-time glutamate measurement was perfused with L-glutamate oxidase, and the current evoked between two voltage-clamped electrodes was detected. Two electrodes were implanted in the retina through the choroid and cerebral cortex in 12… CONTINUE READING
