Energy metabolism and nerve function in cockroaches (Periplaneta americana).

Abstract

Levels of ATP are near normal in the cockroach nerve cord when hypoxia is sufficient to cause coma as determined by behavioral observations and nerve cord electrical activity. During anoxia the major change in ATP occurs after loss of measurable nerve activity. High glycogen levels and reduced energy demands due to coma may contribute to the resistance to anoxic death.
