Endocannabinoids (eCBs) modulate neurotransmission by inhibiting the release of a variety of neurotransmitters. The cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN 55.212-2 (WIN) can modulate organophosphorus (OP) anticholinesterase toxicity in rats, presumably by inhibiting acetylcholine (ACh) release. Some OP anticholinesterases also inhibit eCB-degrading enzymes. We(More)
N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists, including open channel blockers and GluN2B receptor subtype selective antagonists, have been developed for the treatment of depression. The current study investigated effects of systemically administered NMDA channel blockers and GluN2B receptor antagonists on NMDA receptor activity in rodents using in vivo(More)
A number of studies have evaluated the possibility that stress-induced changes in blood-brain barrier permeability enhanced the central effects of the carbamate acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, pyridostigmine. We previously found relatively little evidence of stress-induced changes in the acute toxicity of pyridostigmine in rats using a variety of restraint,(More)
