Is spreading depolarization characterized by an abrupt, massive release of gibbs free energy from the human brain cortex?

Abstract

In the evolution of the cerebral cortex, the sophisticated organization in a steady state far away from thermodynamic equilibrium has produced the side effect of two fundamental pathological network events: ictal epileptic activity and spreading depolarization. Ictal epileptic activity describes the partial disruption, and spreading depolarization describes… (More)
