Semiquantitative autoradiography with tritiated deoxyglucose was performed on rats after a series of 10 electro-convulsive shocks (ECS) administered over 10 days. The purpose of the study was to identify changes in cerebral glucose uptake after ECS. Glucose uptake over a large number of grey and white matter structures cannot be differentiated between rats receiving real and sham ECS. Various behavioral parameters measured in activity boxes do not show significant differences between the two groups.
