• receptors
  • Through the use of mice that are deficient in GalR1 receptors, a picrotoxin-kindled model was utilized to show that galanin plays a role in modulating and preventing hilar cell loss as well as decreasing the duration of induced seizures. (wikipedia.org)
  • presence
  • The restoration of normal patterns of neural activity in the presence of picrotoxin prevented the D-V pathfinding errors in the limb and maintained the normal expression levels of EphA4, EphB1, and polysialic acid on neural cell adhesion molecule, three molecules previously shown to be necessary for this pathfinding choice.

  • To distinguish between these possibilities, we activated the motor circuit at normal bursting frequencies by light activation by channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2) in the presence of picrotoxin. (jneurosci.org)
