The effects of ethanol on brain blood flow in awake dogs.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Ethanol produces a generalized decline in brain flow in awake dogs. The reduction in flow is most marked and persistent in the cerebellum. In the anesthetized animal with brain blood flow already depressed, this effect is obscured. The possible relationship of these findings to the acute and chronic effects of ethanol on the central nervous system in humans is discussed.
