1 The effects of energy substrate removal and metabolic pathway block have been examined on neuronal and glial survival in organotypic slice cultures of rat hippocampus. 2 Slice cultures resisted 24 h of exogenous energy substrate deprivation. Application of 0.5 mM α‐cyano‐4‐hydroxycinnamate (4‐CIN) for 24 h resulted in specific damage to neuronal cell layers, which could be reversed by co‐application of 5 mM lactate. 3 Addition of 10 mM 2‐deoxyglucose in the absence of exogenous energy supply produced widespread cell death throughout the slice. This was partly reversed by co‐application of 5 mM lactate. 4 These effects of metabolic blockade on cell survival were qualitatively similar to the effects on population spikes recorded in the CA1 cell layer following 60 min application of these agents. 5 The data suggest that monocarboxylate trafficking from glia to neurons is an essential route for supply of energy substrates to neurons particularly when exogenous energy supply is restricted.
