The neuroimaging of thirst by positron emission tomography
This chapter discusses the results of experiments on neuroimaging of thirst by positron emission tomography conducted at the Research Imaging Center in San Antonio, Texas. The experiments focused on specific parts of the brain including the parahippocampal gyrus, the anterior and posterior cingulated gyri, the insula, and the thalamus. This chapter describes the changes in these brain areas during the first emergence of consciousness of thirst and after satiation of thirst.
