On the measurement of glucose in brain: A comment to Sacks et al. (1983)
- 22 Downloads
The measurements reported by Sacks et al. (4) were examined critically and shown to be faulty. When performed correctly, the measurements yielded results that correspond closely to those predicted by the model of the brain uptake of 2-deoxyglucose formulated by Sokoloff et al. (5).
