The effects of the GABAA receptor antagonists, pentylenetetrazol, bicuculline, and picrotoxin, the glycine antagonist, strychnine, and the NMDA receptor antagonist, memantine, on ethanol-induced behavioral sleep and body temperature were investigated. Pentylenetetrazol, bicuculline, and picrotoxin given prior and following ethanol reduced the behavioral(More)

1. Bradykinin (cumulative concentrations of 0.007-0.09 micrograms ml-1) produced a dose-related, but statistically insignificant depression of the isometric contraction of the isolated, spontaneously beating atria of the guinea-pig. The same concentrations of bradykinin did not change the atrial rate, but a tendency to a slight decrease was observed. 2.(More)
In unanesthetized cats, defecation produced by thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) was investigated after its injection into the cerebral ventricle (ICV) through chronically implanted cannulae. TRH injected in doses from 0.1 to 1.0 mg into the cerebral ventricle evoked defecation which was not dose-dependent. The antimuscarinic drug, atropine, the(More)
