Groups of water-deprived rats were exposed to acetaldehyde, ethanol or vehicle control. On the conditioning day, the animals were first presented with a solution of saccharin after which the animals that were exposed to acetaldehyde received ethanol and those exposed to ethanol received acetaldehyde. Saccharin was again presented on three more occasions(More)
The possible involvement of catecholamines (CA) in the mediation of acetaldehyde's conditioned taste aversion (CTA) was examined by testing the effects of alpha-methyl-para-tyrosine (AMPT, a tyrosine hydroxylase inhibitor) on the CTAs produced by acetaldehyde. AMPT blocked the acquisition of the CTA normally produced by a low dose of acetaldehyde (0.2(More)
Muller glial cells (MGC) are essential for normal functioning of retina. They are especially involved in potassium (K+) and water homeostasis, via inwardly rectifying K+ (Kir 4.1) and aquaporin-4 (AQP4) channels respectively. Because MGC appear morphologically and functionally altered in most retinal pathologies, we studied the expression of AQP 4 and Kir(More)
