In the present study, we demonstrate that, in a concentration-dependent manner, M100907 (formerly MDL 100907, a highly selective 5-HT2A receptor antagonist and a purported atypical antipsychotic drug [APD]), but not its much less active stereoisomer M100009, completely prevents or markedly reverses the phencyclidine (PCP)-induced blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) responses in pyramidal neurons of the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). Furthermore, the atypical APD clozapine, but not the… CONTINUE READING
