The interaction of ethanol with GABAB-receptor system and the selectivity of phaclofen for GABA-receptor subtypes were investigated by employing an in vitro model of 36Cl-influx assay in mammalian cultured neurons and also in vivo models of picrotoxin- and NMDA-induced convulsions in rats. Ethanol (20 mM), without having any effect per se, potentiated the… CONTINUE READING
