BACKGROUND Since the measurement of human cerebral glucose metabolism (GluM) by positron emission tomography (PET) and that of human cerebral electrical activity by EEG reflect synaptic activity, both methods should be related in their cerebral spatial distribution. Healthy subjects do indeed demonstrate similar metabolic and neuroelectric spatial patterns. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to show that this similarity of GluM and EEG spatial patterns holds true in a population with a high… CONTINUE READING
