Not quite.

What they found were the minimum oxygen levels needed for certain specific neurons to function.  They also found that an anesthetized frog's brain is capable of using up to twice as much O2 as its respiratory system could provide, so they still have no idea how much oxygen an alert frog's brain needs for optimum performance.
