The nonimmobilizer 1,2-dichlorohexafluorocyclobutane (F6; also known as 2N) causes amnesia and seizures at concentrations less than and more than, respectively, than that predicted to cause immobility (MACpred). The molecular and cellular basis of these effects is not known. We reported previously that F6 has no effect on synaptic gamma aminobutyric acid(More)
Background Actions of general anaesthetics on activity in the cortico-thalamic network likely contribute to loss of consciousness and disconnection from the environment. Previously, we showed that the general anaesthetic isoflurane preferentially suppresses cortically evoked synaptic responses compared with thalamically evoked synaptic responses, but how(More)
