BACKGROUND The gamma aminobutyric acid type A (GABA(A)) receptor is a prime target of many anesthetics, including midazolam and propofol. Although these anesthetics have sedative and hypnotic properties by enhancing GABA(A) receptor activity, their interactions at the GABA(A) receptors have not been explored. We investigated the interaction of midazolam and… CONTINUE READING
