An autoradiographic technique that employs 2-[14-C]deoxyglucose to measure the local rates of glucose utilization within the brain has been applied to the binocular visual system of the Macaque monkey. This method, which pictorially displays the relative rates of glucose consumption in the component structures of the brain, delineates the regions of altered… CONTINUE READING
