The autoradiographic 2-deoxyglucose (2DG) method was originally developed by Sokoloff and his associates to quantify regional brain glucose utilization17,18. The technique can also be used to relate specific aspects of behavior to regional patterns of glucose utilization in the brain. This makes it possible to investigate neuronal organization of complex aspects of behavior such as sleep, hibernation, thought, intention, and language.
