Direct Determination of Local Oxygen Consumption of the Brain Cortex in Vivo
Oxygen consumption of the total brain or of parts of the brain has been indirectly determined under different conditions by multiplying the cerebral arterio-venous oxygen difference by the total or regional flow. By this procedure only the mean oxygen consumption of a large area is determined and local differences in oxygen consumption cannot be detected.
