There are several modulatory sites at GABA(A) receptors, which mediate the actions of many drugs, among them benzodiazepine. Three kinds of allosteric modulators act through the benzodiazepine binding site: positive (agonist), neutral (antagonist), and negative (inverse agonist). The goal of the present study was to examine the influence of the inverse(More)
AIM Zolpidem is a non-benzodiazepine agonist at benzodiazepine binding site in GABA(A) receptors, which is increasingly prescribed. Recent studies suggest that prolonged zolpidem treatment induces tolerance. The aim of this study was to explore the adaptive changes in GABA(A) receptors following short and long-term exposure to zolpidem in vitro. METHODS(More)

Despite numerous clinical trials investigating this disease, there is still no effective treatment. Many trials showed negative or inconclusive results, possibly because they recruited only patients with severe disease, who had not undergone(More)
