Selective inhibitors of the glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) have been implicated in central nervous system disorders related to hypoglutamatergic function such as schizophrenia. The selective GlyT1 inhibitors ALX5407 (NFPS) and LY2365109 {[2-(4-benzo[1,3]dioxol-5-yl-2-tert-butylphenoxy)ethyl]-methylamino}-acetic acid increased cerebrospinal fluid levels of(More)
Previous work has suggested that N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonism and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)(2A) receptor blockade may enhance and attenuate, respectively, certain types of impulsivity mediated by corticothalamostriatal circuits. More specifically, past demonstrations of synergistic "antidepressant-like" effects of a 5-HT(2A) receptor(More)
Inhibition of the glycine transporter GlyT1 is a potential strategy for the treatment of schizophrenia. A novel series of GlyT1 inhibitors and their structure-activity relationships (SAR) are described. Members of this series are highly potent and selective transport inhibitors which are shown to elevate glycine levels in cerebrospinal fluid.
Higher levels of cognition, such as executive functions, are known to be disrupted in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia. As a potential model of executive function, rats were trained in a three-lever operant conditioning chamber to respond on two of the three levers in one of six possible correct sequences. When the rat completed a two-response(More)
Patients with epilepsy can have impaired cognitive abilities. Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) may contribute to the cognitive deficits observed in patients with epilepsy, and have been shown to induce cognitive impairments in healthy individuals. However, there are few systematic data on the effects of AEDs on specific cognitive domains. We have previously(More)
Patients with epilepsy can have impaired cognitive abilities. Many factors contribute to this impairment, including the adverse effects of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). However, there are few systematic data on the effects of AEDs on specific cognitive domains, such as working memory. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effects of AEDs on(More)
