Hippocampal and striatal blood flow during behavior in rats: chronic laser Doppler flowmetry study.

Abstract

A technique is described for the chronic measurement of cerebral blood flow in conscious, unrestrained rodents, utilizing laser doppler flowmetry (LDF) removably coupled to an optical fiber permanently implanted into brain tissue by established stereotaxic procedures. Changes in relative blood flow in response to a range of pharmacological and behavioral… (More)
