We have investigated the action of ciguatoxin (CTX) in the mouse following i.p. administration. CTX (0.5 mouse units) induced a rapid (10-20 min) decrease in body temperature that persisted for several hours. This corresponded closely with a neuroexcitatory action of ciguatoxin on c-fos mRNA in the brain. We identified the neuronal pathways activated by CTX(More)
We have investigated the action of domoic acid in the mouse brain following systemic exposure. Domoic acid increased c-fos mRNA within 15 min and its translational product (c-Fos) within 1 h. c-Fos immunoreactivity was most prominent in the hippocampal formation, lateral septal nucleus, olfactory bulb, area postrema and the nucleus of the solitary tract.
