This study examined the protective effect of phenobarbital on kainic acid-induced deficits in acquisition learning. A single kainic acid injection (9 mg/kg i.p.) was administered five days prior to testing using the Morris water maze test. Kainic acid produced deficits in the acquisition of spatial information observed as an increase in latency to a hidden(More)
We recently reported that inhibition of nitric oxide (NO) production by the NO synthase (NOS) inhibitor L-NG-nitro arginine (L-NOARG) antagonized the behavioral effects of a benzodiazepine (BZ) in a mouse paradigm for screening anxiolytic drug activity. Because other research has found that the anesthetic gas nitrous oxide (N2O) also produces BZ-like(More)
