Surgically implanted osmotic minipumps were used to apply dye or [3H]-muscimol locally to the nucleus ventralis lateralis or globus pallidus of the cat. Extent of distribution of dye or radioactivity was measured from the site of application. A uniform distribution (1.2-2.5 mm) of dye or radioactivity was found lateral, ventral, and posterior to the(More)
The microiontophoretic application of morphine to single globus pallidus neurons in morphine naive rats resulted in a depression of both spontaneous and glutamate-evoked firing of these neurons. Seventy percent of all pallidal neurons on which morphine was tested exhibited some degree of depression of neuronal discharge; no excitatory effect ws observed to(More)
The effects of iontophoretically applied substance P (SP) and eledoisin-related peptide (ERP) on the extracellularly recorded activity of spontaneous or D,L-homocysteic acid (DLH)-driven thoracic (T7-T8) spinal neurons, identified by orthodromic activation by the greater splanchnic nerve, were examined in chloralose/urethane anesthetized cats. Of 24 neurons(More)
Postsynaptic potentials, evoked by lingual or hypoglossal nerve stimulation, were recorded from hypoglossal motoneurons of the cat with glass microelectrodes. Lingual nerve-evoked inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (LIPSPs) were recorded in 98% of hypoglossal motoneurons. Hypoglossal nerve stimulation caused a hyperpolarizing potential following the(More)
