Regional cerebral metabolic rate for glucose in beagle dogs of different ages.

This study investigated the different metabolic rates for glucose in different brain regions in awake Beagle dogs of different age groups. They found age-related declines in 15/22 regions. The greatest decreases were between 1 and 6 years of age. Some of these decreases continued with aging in only 5 brain regions.
