The results of studies with the (14C)deoxyglucose technique unequivocally establish that local energy metabolism in cerebral tissues is, as in other tissues, closely coupled to local functional activity. Stimulation of local functional activity increases the local rate of glucose utilization; reduced functional activity depresses it. Local cerebral blood flow is normally distributed among the cerebral structures in almost exact proportion to their rates of glucose utilization and changes… CONTINUE READING
