Excitatory and inhibitory effects of dopamine on neuronal activity of the caudate nucleus neurons in vitro
Effects of dopamine on the rat caudate nucleus neurons were examined in a slice preparation using an intracellular recording technique. Perfusion of the bath with a low concentration (1 microM) ofExpand

A new model of petit mal epilepsy: spontaneous spike and wave discharges in tremor rats
A mutant rat, which was found in a colony of Kyoto:Wistar rats and genetically defined as a tremor rat (tm/tm), developed tremor of the whole body at 2 weeks of age but the tremor graduallyExpand

Electrophysiological evidence for cholinoceptive neurons in the medial vestibular nucleus: Studies on rat brain stem in vitro
Electrophysiological studies were performed to determine whether or not cholinoceptive neurons are present in the rat medial vestibular nucleus (MVN) using brainstem slice preparations. Fifty-threeExpand

Muscarinic regulation of spontaneously active medial vestibular neurons in vitro
We examined the effects of cholinergic agonists and antagonists on spontaneously occurring action potentials extracellularly recorded from medial vestibular nucleus (MVN) neurons in rat brainstemExpand

Commissural and ipsilateral internuclear connection of vestibular nuclear complex of the cat
Commissural and ipsilateral intrinsic connections of the vestibular nuclear complex of cats were investigated using retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). HRP wasExpand

Coexistence of inhibitory dopamine D-1 and excitatory D-2 receptors on the same caudate nucleus neurons.
Microiontophoretic studies using cats anesthetized with alpha-chloralose were performed to determine whether or not dopamine D-1 and D-2 receptors co-exist in the same caudate nucleus (CN) neuronsExpand

Voltage and current clamp studies of muscarinic and nicotinic excitation of the rat adrenal chromaffin cells.
Characteristics of the muscarinic and nicotinic excitation of chromaffin cells that had been freshly isolated from the rat adrenal medullae were analyzed using voltage and current clamp techniques. AExpand

Ifenprodil prevents glutamate cytotoxicity via polyamine modulatory sites of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors in cultured cortical neurons.
Neuroprotective effects of ifenprodil, a noncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist, against glutamate cytotoxicity were examined in cultured rat cortical neurons. The viabilityExpand

Mediation of micturition reflex by central norepinephrine from the locus coeruleus in the cat.
We examined whether norepinephrine originating in the locus coeruleus mediates the micturition reflex in anesthetized cats. 6-Hydroxydopamine, a catecholamine neurotoxin, injected bilaterally intoExpand

Inhibition by thyrotropin-releasing hormone of epileptic seizures in spontaneously epileptic rats.
The effects of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) were investigated on absence-like seizures, which are characterized by the sudden appearance of 5-7 Hz spike-wave-like complexes in the cortical andExpand
