This paper describes the effects of dexmedetomidine (DEX) the active ingredient of medetomidine which is the latest popular sedative for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in rodents on multiple unit activity, local field potential (LFP), cerebral blood flow (CBF), pial vessel diameter (indicative of cerebral blood volume; CBV), and blood-oxygenation-level-dependent (BOLD) fMRI. These measurements were obtained from the rat somatosensory cortex during 10-s forepaw stimulation.
