1. Effects of two volatile anesthetics [halothane (Hal) and enflurane (Enf)] and a volatile convulsant [hexafluorodiethyl ether (HFE)] on amino acid-induced membrane currents in neurons dissociated from the nucleus tractus solitarius of the rat were examined. The dissociated neurons were voltage clamped in the whole-cell mode of the patch-clamp technique. All drugs were applied with a microperfusion system, termed the "Y-tube" method. 2. The glutamate (Glu)-induced excitatory response was… CONTINUE READING
