Strychnine blocks inhibitory postsynaptic potentials elicited in masseter motoneurons by sensory stimuli during carbachol-induced motor atonia.

In previous studies we reported that large-amplitude inhibitory potentials were elicited in masseter motoneurons by auditory stimuli (95-dB clicks) and stimulation of the sciatic nerve in alpha-chloralose-anesthetized cats [Kohlmeier K. A. et al. (1994) Soc. Neurosci. Abstr. 20, 1218; Kohlmeier K. A. et al. (1995) Sleep Res. 24, 9]. These potentials were… CONTINUE READING
