Cannabinoids excite dopamine neurons in the ventral tegmentum and substantia nigra
EXTRACELLULAR recordings were used to determine the effects of cannabinoids on the activity of dopamine neurons within the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and substantia nigra pars compacta (SNC).Expand

Echogenicity of fetal lung: relation to fetal age and maturity.
Reports of echogenicity of the fetal lung as it relates to maturity of that organ are scant and at variance. A study was undertaken to determine if any correlation between fetal age and/or lungExpand

Effects of ibogaine, and cocaine and morphine after ibogaine, on ventral tegmental dopamine neurons.
Ibogaine, an indole containing alkaloid, has been shown to reduce the rate of injection of morphine and cocaine in self-administration protocols. Since morphine- and cocaine-induced modulation ofExpand

Synthesis and structure-activity relationships of 6-heterocyclic-substituted purines as inactivation modifiers of cardiac sodium channels.
Purine-based analogs of SDZ 211-500 (5) were prepared and evaluated as inactivation modifiers of guinea pig or human cardiac sodium (Na) channels expressed in Xenopus oocytes. Substances which removeExpand
