[Effect of sodium nitrite on the activity of the neocortex neurons during realization of defense and inhibition conditioned reflexes].

A decrease in intensity and duration of short-latency reaction components of the sensorimotor and visual cortical neurons to specific stimuli (pain reinforcement and light flashes, respectively) was observed after the administration of NO-generating sodium nitrite (11 mg/kg, subcutaneously). Activation decrease in the visual cortex took place irrespective… CONTINUE READING
