Abstract

Intravenously administered cyclobenzaprine (CBZ) (Flexeril), a clinically used, centrally acting muscle relaxant, abolished muscle rigidity in the intercollicular decerebrate rat. In animals in which the locus coeruleus was lesioned bilaterally previously, CBZ failed to attenuate the electromyogram. In the ventral horn of the cord, which receives a dense… (More)
