The present study investigated the role of the dorsomedial hypothalamus (DMH) on cardiovascular and behavioural responses of chemoreflex activation in conscious rats. The arterial chemoreflex was activated by potassium cyanide (KCN, 40 μg, i.v.) before and after bilateral microinjection of lidocaine (2%) or kynurenic acid (2.7 nmol) into the DMH. Locomotor(More)
The present study was undertaken to explore changes in neurotransmitters and neuromodulators of brain regions impaired by microsphere embolism-induced, sustained ischemia. Nine hundred microspheres (48 microns) were injected into the right internal carotid artery of rats, and the time course of changes in the triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC)-stained(More)
