Comparison of the CNS effects induced by TRH and bicuculline after microinjection into medial septum, substantia nigra and inferior colliculus: absence of support for a GABA antagonist action for TRH.


Antagonism of ethanol-induced depression of locomotion was observed after intracisternal injection of thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) and bicuculline methiodide (BICM), as well as after microinjection of these drugs into the medial septum. The present investigation compared the behavioral and physiological consequence of administering TRH and BICM into… (More)
