1. Pharmacological actions of a novel benzodiazepine receptor ligand, S-8510 (2-(3-isoxazolyl)-3,6,7,9-tetrahydroimidazo[4,5-d]pyrano+ ++[4,3-b] pyridine monophosphate monohydrate), were examined in in vitro and in vivo studies. 2. S-8510 was characterized as a partial inverse agonist with a modest GABA ratio and low efficacy. 3. S-8510 ameliorated memory(More)
The present studies sought to investigate the effect of milnacipran called the serotonin (5-HT) and noradrenaline (NA) reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) on the interaction of central locus coeruleus noradrenergic and dorsal raphe nucleus serotonergic functional activity by utilizing in vivo microdialysis. A single administration of milnacipran (60 mg/kg, s.c.)(More)
The effects of acute and short-term administration of tryptophan or tryptophan plus ethanol on serotonin [5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)] and two of its metabolites, 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and 5-hydroxytryptophol (5-HTPL), in the locus coeruleus were investigated in rats by using the microdialysis method. In addition, the acute effects of these(More)
1. S-135, 2-(5-methylthien-3-yl)-2,5-dihydro-3H-pyrazolo[4,3-c]quinoline-3- one, bind binds to benzodiazepine receptors with a high affinity and shows pharmacological actions opposite to those of conventional benzodiazepine drugs. 2. S-135 induced no convulsion in mice by itself, but selectively potentiated the effect of subconvulsive dose of(More)
