We studied the effect of alaproclate [2-(4-chlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethyl 2-aminopropanoate] on the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-induced changes in membrane potential and intracellular free Ca++ in cerebellar granule cells by using the fluorescent indicators DiBaC4(3) and fura-2, respectively. The NMDA-induced responses were blocked by the 5-hydroxytryptamine(More)
