The effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and the GABAA receptor antagonist bicuculline methiodide (BICM) on the activity of taste-responsive neurons in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) were examined electrophysiologically in urethane-anesthetized hamsters. Single neurons in the NST were recorded extracellularly and drugs (21 nl) were microinjected into the vicinity of the cell via a multibarrel pipette. The response of each cell was recorded to lingual stimulation with 0.032 M NaCl… CONTINUE READING
