In this study we show that when the final dose of adenosine A1 agonist is given 1 h prior to sacrifice the number of c-Fos positive cells evoked by the AIA in(More)
Using urethane-chloralose anesthetized rats, we investigated which GABA receptor is responsible for the action of endogenous GABA on the carotid chemoreceptor reflex in the commissural subnucleus of the nucleus tractus solitarius (commNTS). Microinjection of the selective GABA uptake inhibitor nipecotic acid (40 nmol) into the commNTS attenuated the(More)
