Amino acid transmitter candidates in various regions of the primary olfactory cortex following bulbectomy
The effect of bulbectomy on amino acid levels in 5 regions of the rat primary olfactory cortex has been monitored. Glutamate levels were significantly lowered in the lateral olfactory tract only. InExpand

The rates of synthesis, uptake and disappearance of (14C)-taurine in eight areas of the rat central nervous system.
A study has been made of the uptake, metabolism and half-life of [14C]taurine in 8 areas of the rat central nervous system. When tissue slices were incubated with radioactive taurine (1.31 μM) theExpand

INDIRECT EFFECTS OF AMINO‐ACIDS ON SYMPATHETIC GANGLION CELLS MEDIATED THROUGH THE RELEASE OF γ‐AMINOBUTYRIC ACID FROM GLIAL CELLS
1 All experiments were performed on rat isolated desheathed superior cervical ganglia maintained in Krebs solution containing amino‐oxyacetic acid (10 μm) at 25°C. 2 Influx rates of γ‐amino‐n‐butyricExpand
