Effect of fluothane on the mesencephalic reticular formation and cerebral cortex

Abstract

The effect of fluothane on evoked responses in the mesencephalic re t icu lar formation, on the EEG desynchronizat ion react ion during electr ical stimulation of the re t icular formation, and on t ranscal losa l responses was studied in acute experiments on cats. Fluothane caused marked inhibition of evoked responses in the re t icu la r formation. Although the EEG desynchronization react ion was depressed, this effect was much less marked than that on the evoked responses . The amplitude of the t ranscal losa l responses was appreciably reduced with increasing depth of anesthesia.
