The inhibitory amino acid GABA is a potent modulator of the spontaneous discharge and the responses to afferent inputs of neurons in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS). To determine if responses to activation of GABA(A) receptors are altered in hypertension, GABA(A) receptor-evoked whole cell currents were measured in enzymatically dispersed NTS… CONTINUE READING
