Blood Flow, Oxygen and Electrical Dynamics in Cerebral Ischemia
Blood flow and oxygen availability are obvious basic requirements for normal brain function. We have measured blood flow and oxygen partial pressures of brain tissue during experimental ischemia in the gerbil. These O2—tension and blood—flow changes have been correlated with contemporaneous changes in the concatenated EEG and in the visual evoked cortical responses (VECR).
