BACKGROUND The sites where anesthetics produce unconsciousness are not well understood. Likely sites include the cerebral cortex, thalamus, and reticular formation. We examined the effects of propofol and etomidate on neuronal function in the cortex, thalamus, and reticular formation in intact animals. METHODS Five cats had a recording well and(More)
