In studies with reserpine and with etryptamine, quite opposite electroencephalographic effects were obtained when either of these two drugs was administered to rabbits prior to surgical preparation for EEG recording as opposed to the drug being given after the rabbits had been fully prepared for EEG recording. With the one method, EEG rhythms indicative of(More)
Chlorpromazine was found to have an antagonistic action against the electroencephalographic (EEG) alerting produced in rabbits by cholinergic agents, particularly eserine salycilate and acetylcholine chloride. This cholinolytic action occurs at a prepontine, precollicular level where adrenergic agents fail to elicit EEG alerting. These results emphasize the(More)
