The effects of the neurosteroid 3alpha-hydroxy-5alpha-pregnane-20-one (allopregnanolone) on synaptic and GABA-evoked currents in acutely dissociated neurons from the medial preoptic nucleus of rat were investigated by perforated-patch recordings under voltage-clamp conditions. The effect of 2.0 microM allopregnanolone on GABA-evoked currents depended strongly on the GABA concentration: the currents evoked by 100 microM GABA were markedly depressed and the desensitization was faster, but the… CONTINUE READING
