Norepinephrine (NE) depletion of the cerebral cortex after lesion of the ipsilateral locus ceruleus (LC) causes abnormalities of cerebral oxidative metabolism when the cortex is stimulated to increased energy demand (Harik, S. I., J. C. LaManna, A. I. Light, and M. Rosenthal (1979) Science 206: 69-71; LaManna, J. C., S. I. Harik, A. I. Light, and M… CONTINUE READING
