Experiments were conducted to evaluate the possibility that central GABA(A) receptors are involved in the stress response of rats. Separate groups of animals were implanted bilaterally with cannulae in the lateral cerebral ventricle, substantia nigra, and anterior to the rostral margin of the substantia nigra. Microinjections of the GABA(A) agonist muscimol(More)
Activation of central GABA(A) systems with muscimol has been shown to facilitate stress responding and GABA is known to modulate central dopaminergic activity. To evaluate the possibility that this effect of muscimol may depend upon a dopamine mechanism we have tested the effect of intracerebroventricular coadministration of muscimol and the selective D(1)(More)
