The whole cell recording technique was used to explore the depressant effect of the tricyclic antidepressant imipramine (IP) on calcium currents of neurons in cultures of murine dorsal root ganglia. The maximal whole cell current (ICa) mediated by the L-type calcium channel declined to 54% of control within 3 min of superfusing neurons with a solution(More)
The objective of this study was to further investigate neurochemicals which might modulate congenital differences in sensitivity to the acute and chronic effects of ethanol. Catecholamine levels were measured in the cortex, hippocampus, midbrain and cerebellum of long-sleep (LS) and short-sleep (SS) mice. These measurements revealed that norepinephrine (NE)(More)
