Spontaneous activity and responses to sensory stimuli were analysed in the hippocampal CA1 neurons of chronic unanesthetized rabbits before and after reversible functional blockade of the median raphe nucleus and medial septal area by local microinjections of anesthetic lidocaine. This evoked, correspondingly, persistent theta rhythm and its complete(More)
The control of theta rhythm in neuronal activity of the medial septal area and hippocampal electroencephalogram by the brainstem structures was investigated in waking rabbits. In the first series of experiments stimulating electrodes were implanted into the midbrain reticular formation and median raphe nucleus. The standard frequency of theta-bursts in(More)
Our previous studies on conscious rabbits showed that stimulation of the median cervical nucleus (MCN) decreases the extent and frequency of oscillatory theta activity in the septohippocampal system, while functional blockade of the nucleus by administration of the anesthetic lidocaine produces a stage high-frequency theta rhythm. The present study(More)
Responses to sensory stimuli were analyzed in hippocampal CA1 neurons of unanesthetized rabbits in chronic experiments before and after reversible functional blockade of the median raphe nucleus (MR) and medial septal area (MS-DB) by local microinjections of anesthetic lidocaine. The MR blockade, which resulted in an enhancement of theta-modulation of the(More)
In earlier studies it has been shown that stimulation of the median raphe nucleus (MR) in awake rabbits decreases the expression and frequency of oscillatory theta activity in the septohippocampal system, and the functional blockade of this nucleus evokes the regular and high-frequency theta rhythm. The present work was aimed at elucidation of(More)
The functional importance of theta modulation in the activity of hippocampal neurons was further analyzed using a method consisting of controlled sequential short-term (25-30 min) inclusion or exclusion of the theta rhythm by local administration of lidocaine into the median cervical nucleus and medial septal region respectively. Studies were carried out(More)
A method of controlled successive short-term (25-30 min) stabilization or suppression of the theta rhythm by local injections of lidocaine into median raphe nucleus or medical septal area (MS-DB) was tested for further analysis of the functional significance of theta-modulation in activity of hippocampal neurons. Extracellular recording of their activity(More)
