Direct antagonism of ethanol's effects on GABA(A) receptors by increased atmospheric pressure.

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that exposure to 12 times normal atmospheric pressure of helium-oxygen gas (heliox) directly antagonizes a range of ethanol's acute and chronic behavioral effects. The present study extends the investigation to the biochemical level by investigating the effects of pressure on ethanol-induced potentiation of GABA(A) receptor… (More)
