Jeong D, Oh J, Lee J, Lee J, Cho Z, Chang J, Chang W (2016) Basal forebrain cholinergic deficits reduce glucose metabolism and function of cholinergic and gabaergic systems in the cingulate cortex. Yonsei Med J 57:165-172. doi: 10.3349/ymj.2016.57.1.165
Summary: A common result of cholinergic neuron loss in the hippocampus and cortical regions due to Alzheimer’s disease is a reduction in glucose metabolism. The authors examine the interaction between the cell loss and metabolic changes. Rats received 5-μg bilateral cortical injections of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01), were subject to water maze testing, and analyzed by 18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography. Lesioned animals displayed decreased learning performance and reduced metabolic activity in the cingulate cortex.
