The effects of excitatory amino acid (EAA) receptor antagonists in blocking the synaptic transmission between gustatory fibers of the chorda tympani (CT) nerve and taste-responsive neurons within the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) were examined electrophysiologically in urethan-anesthetized hamsters. Single neurons in the NST were recorded extracellularly and drugs were microinjected into the vicinity of the cell with the use of a multibarrel pipette assembly. The activity of each cell was… CONTINUE READING
