As temporal lobe dysfunction has been postulated in the affective disorders, the authors investigated glucose utilization in the temporal lobes of 13 affectively ill patients in comparison with 18 normal volunteer controls and 17 previously reported schizophrenic patients, following injections of fluorine 18-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) during somatosensory stimulation to the right forearm. Using a boundary-finding algorithm to outline each temporal lobe, maximum glucose use relative to maximums… CONTINUE READING
