Factors affecting the anaerobic glycolysis of brain tissue and the effects of sodium and potassium on brain metabolism.

The experiments to be presented consist of an attempt to extend the observations of Dickens and Greville on the effects of anoxia and lack of substrate on the subsequent carbohydrate metabolism of brain tissue. Dickens and Greville (1933) working with brain slices, and Elliott and Henry (1946) with suspensions, showed that deprivation of both oxygen and substrate for relatively short periods caused a marked inhibition of the subsequent anaerobic glycolysis, while respiration was inhibited to a lesser degree.
