Effect of up-regulation of NMDA receptors on cerebral O2 consumption and blood flow in rat.


We tested the hypothesis that cerebrocortical blood flow and O2 consumption would be proportional to an up-regulated number of functional N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Previous work had shown a relationship between cerebral metabolism and NMDA receptor activity. We increased the specific binding to NMDA receptors in the cerebral cortex, from 2.2… (More)
