Hudetz, A. G., Mashour, G. A.
(Abstracted from Anesth Analg, 123(5):1228–1240, 2016) The purpose of this review on the “Common Anesthetic End Point” was to comprehensively review the neuroscientific basis for anesthetic-induced loss and return of consciousness. Topics covered included a review of the importance of information integration in consciousness; early studies of network breakdown during anesthesia; preclinical, translational, and clinical research demonstrating disrupted frontal-to-parietal connectivity during anesthesia; and an update on the potential mechanisms of this functional disruption.
