What the actions of anaesthetics on fast synaptic transmission reveal about the molecular mechanism of anaesthesia.

Abstract

1. Synapses with the brain are important components of the networks responsible for higher nervous function and current evidence suggests that general anaesthetics modulate synaptic transmission in the brain. 2. Analysis of anaesthetic action on these synapses not only defines the cellular mechanisms involved in anaesthesia but also reveals much about the… (More)
