Although astrocytes express gamma-aminobutyric acid subtype-A (GABAA) receptors in the mature brain, GABAA receptor expression in a cultivation state remains controversial. In this study, we investigated the alteration of astrocytic GABAA receptor expression in in vitro and in vivo studies to elucidate the relevance of astrocytic activation to reductions of(More)
The effects of arginine-vasopressin (AVP) on area postrema (AP) neurons and the neuronal connection between the AP and nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) were electrophysiologically investigated in rat medulla slices. In the AP, 27.9% of 129 neurons were excited by AVP and 20.5% were inhibited. The excitation was blocked by an V1 receptor antagonist. Synaptic(More)
