Dissociation of mu and delta opioid receptor-mediated reductions in evoked and spontaneous synaptic inhibition in the rat hippocampus in vitro.

Abstract

Modulation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-mediated inhibition, and glutamate-mediated excitation by highly selective mu and delta opioid agonists was studied using intracellular recordings of CA1 pyramidal neuron synaptic responses in superfused hippocampal slices. Equimolar concentrations of the selective mu agonist, [Tyr-(D-Ala)-Gly-(N-Me-Phe)-Gly-ol… (More)
