CNS tissue is well known to have large energy requirements. However, because of the difficulty of measuring rates of energy usage, relatively little is known about which cell types and which neurophysiological functions are the principal energy users. In experiments performed on rabbit retina in vitro, it was possible to measure O2 consumption and lactate production with the retinas under resting conditions and in different states of physiological activity. Resting energy consumption was large… CONTINUE READING
