The effects of a range of antidepressants were investigated on neuronal voltage-gated Na(+) and K(+) channels. With the exception of phenelzine, all antidepressants inhibited batrachotoxin-stimulated 22Na(+) uptake, most likely via negative allosteric inhibition of batrachotoxin binding to neurotoxin receptor site-2 on the Na(+) channel. Imipramine also(More)
BACKGROUND To dissect the intricate workings of neural circuits, it is essential to gain precise control over subsets of neurons while retaining the ability to monitor larger-scale circuit dynamics. This requires the ability to both evoke and record neural activity simultaneously with high spatial and temporal resolution. NEW METHOD In this paper we(More)
Tremor is clinically evaluated and classified on the basis of its response to limb posture (resting, postural, and kinetic tremor), but the mechanisms underlying this powerful influence remain unclear and no satisfactory method exists to identify or quantify underlying tremor subtypes. Postural change is closely linked to changes in gravitational load. We(More)
