Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) influences the activity of rat hypothalamic neurons, modifies the membrane excitability of the rat forebrain neurons, and induces changes in membrane potentials in cultured rat glioma cells. In order to explore whether these effects are reflected in the electrical activity of larger subcortical brain areas, we investigated(More)
Methionine sulphoximine (MSO) is a centrally acting neurotoxin which inhibits the glutamate metabolism enzymes and has convulsive properties. Small doses of MSO were administered to rabbits, either intravenously (i.v.) or intracerebroventricularly (ICV), and electron microscopic examination of the cerebellum, the spinal cord and the sciatic nerve was(More)
Methionine sulfoximine (MSO) is a centrally acting neurotoxin which inhibits the glutamate metabolism enzymes and has convulsive properties. Administration of a small dose of MSO to rabbits, either intravenously or intracerebroventricularly, except for the already known convulsive effects, may also be responsible for hind leg myopathy (rigid paralysis with(More)
