Cats were submitted to complete cerebral ischemia by clamping the innominate and subclavian arteries and simultaneously lowering the systemic blood pressure. Neuronal function was assessed by recording the electroencephalogram and the anti- and orthodromic activation of the pyramidal tract. A full recovery of the pyramidal response and even of evoked electroencephalographic activity occurred after ischemia of more than 1 hour's duration. 
The effect of ischemia on sensorimotor cortex of cat
TLDR
The neurophysiological recovery was paralleled by the restoration of the energy-producing metabolism which approached normal values when spontaneous EEG activity reappeared, and electronmicroscopy revealed the structural preservation of the cortex after the recovery of function. Expand
Biochemical and electrophysiological aspects of neuronal recovery after prolonged ischemia of the cat.
TLDR
The mitochondrial swelling which was observed as one of the structural changes of the sensorimotor cortex taken at this time, seemed to be related to the incomplete recovery of ATP concentration and DNP-stimulated ATP-ase activity. Expand
Suppression and recovery of neuronal function in transient cerebral ischemia.
TLDR
Transient cerebral ischemia was produced in anesthetized cats by interrupting the arterial blood supply to the brain under direct observation of the pial circulation with Cerebrovascular perfusion with 6% dextran, calf serum or Ringer's solution during ischemIA. Expand
Cerebral blood flow. A predictor of recovery from ischemia in the gerbil.
TLDR
The determination of ultimate brain death appeared to coincide with a major circulatory abnormality that is probably microvascular and appeared to minimize the likelihood of brain death in gerbils. Expand
Effect of ischaemia on the function of the sensorimotor cortex in cat.
TLDR
It is confirmed that basic neuronal functions may reappear after complete ischaemia of more than 1 h and that the effect of ischaemic on the sensorimotor cortex was studied by recording the spontaneous EEG and the pyramidal response to electrical stimulation of the cortex. Expand
Postischemic Recovery of Nucleotide Metabolism in the Cat Brain
TLDR
It has been shown that nerve cells may survive extended periods of ischemia provided cerebral blood flow is efficiently restored and “no-reflow phenomena” can be avoided. Expand
Hemodynamic and metabolic concomitants of brain swelling and cerebral edema due to experimental cerebral infarction.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that cerebral edema was caused by loss of autoregulation of cerebral blood flow concomitant with hyperemia and an increase of water and chloride content of brain tissue. Expand
Pyramidal Tract Responses (PTR) During Hypoxia and Hypotension
TLDR
Observations on EEG activity during hypoxia and during trimethaphan-induced hypotension suggest that unilateral carotid artery ligation produces a more severe perfusion defect in lateral portions of the hemisphere. Expand
Ultrastructural and histochemical investigation of the cerebral cortex of cat during and after complete ischaemia
TLDR
Complete cerebral ischaemia was produced in normothermic barbiturized cats by clamping the innominate and subclavian arteries and lowering the systemic blood pressure and all the enzyme activities studied were sharply decreased. Expand
Recovery of the Cortical Evoked Response Following Temporary Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion in Baboons: Relation to Local Blood Flow and Po2
TLDR
The reduced postocclusive Po2 levels associated with incomplete recovery of the evoked response suggest that reduced perfusion during ischemia was sufficiently severe to cause some degree of irreversible anoxic damage. Expand

Single and multiple-unit analysis of cortical stage of pyramidal tract activation.
TLDR
An analysis of cortically evoked pyramidal tract discharges recorded from sites where such distortion is minimized or absent indicates that records from the “region of pyramid decussation” are contaminated with, and often dominated by, activity in extrapyramidal neurons. Expand
