We combined a study of the subcellular distribution of the alpha1, alpha2, alpha4, beta1, beta2/3, gamma2, and delta subunits of the GABAA receptor with an electrophysiological analysis of GABAA receptor currents determine the to types of receptors expressed on cultured hippocampal pyramidal neurons. The immunocytochemistry study demonstrated that alpha1,(More)
Various agents were tested for their ability to antagonize the acute excitotoxic action of N-methyl-DL-aspartate (NMA) and kainic acid (KA) on neurons in the in vitro chick embryo retina. The following compounds (in order of descending potencies) were effective in completely blocking the neurotoxic activity of NMA: phencyclidine, ketamine, (+/-)-SKF 10,047,(More)
Event related desynchronization (ERD) allows evaluation of brain signals in multiple frequency dimensions. The purpose of this study was to determine left hemispheric non-primary motor cortex differences at varying frequencies of premovement ERD for similar movements by end-effectors of the upper and lower extremities. We recorded 32-channel(More)

The behavioral response to amphetamine was monitored in rats that received simultaneous intraventricular infusions of saline or ascorbate. Both groups of animals displayed comparable responses, although ascorbate significantly delayed the onset of amphetamine-induced locomotion and rearing. In rats pretreated with a threshold dose of haloperidol (0.025(More)
