Differential Effects of Electrical Stimulation of Sciatic Nerve on Metabolic Activity in Spinal Cord and Dorsal Root Ganglion
in the Rat
Sokoloff later noted, "This paper provides clear evidence that the increases in glucose utilization in the nervous system
evoked by functional activation is localized to synapse-rich areas in neuropil and not at all in the perikarya, and that the
increases in glucose utilization are linearly related to the spike frequency in the afferent pathway."
