Propofol-block of SK channels in reticular thalamic neurons enhances GABAergic inhibition in relay neurons.


The GABAergic reticular thalamic nucleus (RTN) is a major source of inhibition for thalamocortical neurons in the ventrobasal complex (VB). Thalamic circuits are thought to be an important anatomic target for general anesthetics. We investigated presynaptic actions of the intravenous anesthetic propofol in RTN neurons, using RTN-retained and RTN-removed… (More)
