The prefrontal cortex and the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus are reciprocally connected through excitatory amino acid pathways. Cortical excitatory responses resulting from activation of either the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus-prefrontal cortex pathway (short latency) or the recurrent collaterals of prefrontal cortex-mediodorsal thalamic nucleus neurons (long latency) can be discriminated mainly by their latency. The present study was undertaken to compare the effects of halothane and ketamine… CONTINUE READING
