Influence of reduced oxygen availability on cerebral metabolic changes during bicuculline-induced seizures in rats.


The objective of the present work was to study cerebral energy metabolism at threshold levels of hypoxia, i.e., degrees of hypoxia that abolish cerebral electrical activity, in the "normal" and in the epileptic brain. Seizures were induced by intravenous bicuculline and cerebral oxygen availability was reduced by a combination of lowered PO2 and reduced… (More)
