We have previously shown that microinjection of drugs that interfere with the function of the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) into the hypothalamus produces cardiorespiratory and behavioral changes resembling those seen in emotional stress. The purpose of this study was to determine whether excitatory amino acids (EAAs) can produce a cardiovascular response similar to that caused by the GABAA receptor antagonist bicuculline methiodide (BMI) when microinjected at the… CONTINUE READING
