Dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens (NAC) plays a crucial role in the action of various psychotropic and addictive drugs, such as antagonists of the N-methyl-d-aspartate subtype of the glutamate. Although both nitrous oxide and xenon are N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonists, they differ in their potential for producing neuropsychological toxicity; therefore, we decided to examine their effects on both spontaneous and ketamine-induced extracellular dopamine levels in the NAC. A… Expand
Effects of nitrous oxide on dopamine release in the rat nucleus accumbens and expectation of reward
TLDR
The capacity of N2O to block the expression of morphine-induced CPP in mice and in rats was shown and an increase of DA extracellular level in the Nac when animals were placed in the morphine-paired compartment and these increase was blocked by N2 O. Expand
Dopamine D2-Like Receptor in the Nucleus Accumbens Is Involved in the Antinociceptive Effect of Nitrous Oxide
TLDR
It is possible that inhalation of N 2O activates mesolimbic dopaminergic neurons, and that the antinociceptive effect of N2O is at least partially mediated by dopamine D2-like receptors in the NAc shell region. Expand
Plasma corticosterone, epinephrine, and norepinephrine levels increase during administration of nitrous oxide in rats
TLDR
An N2O-induced increase in CORT is consistent with the observation that addictive drugs typically activate the HPA axis causing increased plasma levels of glucocorticoids. Expand
Selective blockade of N-methyl-d-aspartate channels in combination with dopamine receptor antagonism induces loss of the righting reflex in mice, but not immobility
TLDR
The DAergic stimulant actions of MK-801 may mask its LorR effects by NMDA channel blockade, as LORR induced byMK-801 plus haloperidol inhibits the pain suppression system. Expand
Xenon Does Not Affect γ-Aminobutyric Acid Type A Receptor Binding in Humans
TLDR
Xenon did not affect 11C-flumazenil binding in the living human brain, indicating that the anesthetic effect of xenon is not mediated via the GABAA receptor system. Expand
The ketamine-like compound methoxetamine substitutes for ketamine in the self-administration paradigm and enhances mesolimbic dopaminergic transmission
TLDR
This study, while confirming the reinforcing effects of MXE, highlights an electrophysiological and neurochemical profile predictive of its addictive properties. Expand
Effect of ketamine administration, alone and in combination with E-6837, on climbing behavior
TLDR
The present results suggest that there is an interaction between N-methyl-D-aspartate and 5-HT6 receptors in the regulation of climbing behavior, and further research is necessary to provide more evidence on this interaction. Expand
Biologic Effects of Nitrous Oxide A Mechanistic and Toxicologic Review
Nitrous oxide is the longest serving member of the anesthesiologist’s pharmacologic armamentarium but remains a source of controversy because of fears over its adverse effects. Recently, theExpand
Biologic Effects of Nitrous Oxide: A Mechanistic and Toxicologic Review
TLDR
Although it would seem prudent to avoid nitrous oxide in certain vulnerable populations, current evidence in support of a more widespread proscription from clinical practice is unconvincing. Expand
Nitrous Oxide (N2O) as a Treatment for Refractory Depression: A Word of Caution.

TLDR
Concerns are raised regarding the use of N2O as a therapeutic in trMDD, and there needs to be a clarification as to why such dysregulation in 1-carbon metabolism exists in the first place before N 2O should even be considered as a treatment option. Expand

Pentobarbital inhibits ketamine-induced dopamine release in the rat nucleus accumbens: a microdialysis study.
TLDR
The data suggest that the dopamine release in the NAC may be involved in ketamine- induced, but not barbiturate-induced, psychotropic effects and addiction, and inhibition ofketamine-induced dopamine release by barbiturates may be a mechanism by which they prevent ketamine emergence reactions. Expand
Xenon Inhibits but N2O Enhances Ketamine-Induced c-Fos Expression in the Rat Posterior Cingulate and Retrosplenial Cortices
TLDR
Xenon may suppress the adverse neuronal effects of ketamine, and combined use of xenon and ketamine seems to be safe in respect to neuronal adverse effects. Expand
Neuroprotective and neurotoxic properties of the 'inert' gas, xenon.
TLDR
Uniquely amongst anaesthetics with known NMDA receptor antagonist action, xenon exhibits neuroprotective properties without co-existing neurotoxicity. Expand
Increases in extracellular dopamine levels and locomotor activity after direct infusion of phencyclidine into the nucleus accumbens
TLDR
The results indicate that PCP can increase extracellular levels of DA by direct actions in the DA terminal region, and that these effects are related to some of the behavioral stimulant properties of PCP. Expand
Non‐NMDA excitatory amino acid receptors in the ventral tegmental area mediate systemic dizocilpine (MK‐801) induced hyperlocomotion and dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens
TLDR
The results indicate that MK‐801 induced hyperlocomotion and DA release in the NAC are largely elicited within the VTA via activation of non‐NMDA EAA receptors, tentatively caused by increased EAA release. Expand
Effects of Gaseous Anesthetics Nitrous Oxide and Xenon on Ligand-gated Ion Channels: Comparison with Isoflurane and Ethanol
TLDR
The results suggest that NMDA receptors and nACh receptors composed of &bgr;2 subunits are likely targets for nitrous oxide and xenon, which are distinct from that of isoflurane or ethanol. Expand
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is an NMDA antagonist, neuroprotectant and neurotoxin
TLDR
It is shown that N2O, at anesthetically-relevant concentrations, inhibits both ionic currents and excitotoxic neurodegeneration mediated through NMDA receptors and, like other NMDA antagonists, produces neurotoxic side effects which can be prevented by drugs that enhance CABAergic inhibition. Expand
Pathological changes induced in cerebrocortical neurons by phencyclidine and related drugs.
TLDR
These findings raise new questions regarding the safety of these agents in the clinical management of neurodegenerative diseases and reinforce concerns about the potential risks associated with illicit use of PCP. Expand
The behavioural effects of MK-801 in rats: involvement of dopaminergic, serotonergic and noradrenergic systems.
TLDR
The data indicate that, in addition to catecholaminergic systems, serotonergic neurotransmission is significantly involved in the mechanisms by which MK-801 alters behaviour in rats. Expand
Non-competitive N-methyl-d-aspartate antagonists are potent activators of ventral tegmental A10 dopamine neurons
TLDR
The activation of the A10-mesolimbic-mesocortical dopamine pathways is mediated by the PCP receptor, not the haloperidol-sensitive sigma-receptor, with potencies directly correlated to their activity as non-competitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonists. Expand
