talpoides, it is reported that the American shrew-mole, Neurotrichus gibbsii, shows body temperature reduction and hypometabolism along with a reduction of ambient temperature (Campbell & Hochachka 2000).
We propose that this vicious cycle of presymptomatic glucose hypometabolism causes chronic brain energy deprivation, and might contribute to deteriorating neuronal function.
sup][11],[38] The third type of PET produced patchy severe hypometabolism, usually involving the medial frontal cortex, temporal parietal area, inferior temporal gyrus, anterior temporal lobe, orbitofrontal lobe, posterior gyrus cingulum/precuneus, medial temporal lobe, intraparietal sulcus, or occipital lobe.
His magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appeared normal, and a positron emission tomography (PET) scan revealed some hypometabolism on the right side of his brain.

Both the NIA-AA and IWG systems comprise five biomarkers (low cerebrospinal fluid amyloid-beta42; positive PET amyloid imaging; elevated CSF tau; hypometabolism in the temporoparietal cortex on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET imaging; and atrophy in specific brain regions) plus cognitive testing.
Recent fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) studies proved hypometabolism of the affected hemisphere [8, 9], whereas other studies have suggested that a reduced blood flow through carotid artery due to co-arctation could be the cause of cerebral hemiatrophy [9, 10].
