Neuronal Degeneration in the Cingulate Gyrus: NMDA Antagonists and Anticholinesterases( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of these studies was to determine the neurotoxic risks of combining acetyloholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) with N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists. There is evidence that although NMDA receptor antagonists are considered neuroprotective against excess glutamate release during acute conditions, these same agents may also induce neurodegeneration in brain areas associated with attention and motivation; This neurodegeneration is exacerbated by muscarinic cholinergic agonists. Military personnel and civilians may be exposed to a wide array of cholinesterase inhibitors by pesticide exposure, chemical weapons deployment or prophylactic treatment. Exposure to these agents may elevate brain levels of acetyloholine (ACh), leading to increased muscarinic cholinergic stimulation. Individuals may be at risk of neuronal degeneration if they are co-exposed to a NMDA receptor antagonist, for example, cough suppressants, anticonvulsants, ethanol or the Alzheimer Disease agent, memantine. We approached this problem by using patch-clamp electrophysiology, behavioral assessment and histopathology to examine the effects NMDA receptor antagonists in animals co-exposed to AChET agents. We found that the AChET, PB is neuroprotective in some animals co-exposed to NMDA antagonists, but is lethal in others
Buzzed by Wilkie Wilson( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fourth edition of the essential, accessible source for understanding how drugs work and their effects on body and behavior. A bestseller in its three previous editions, Buzzed is now revised and updated with the most recent discoveries about drugs. It includes new information about biological and behavioral changes in addiction, the prescription-drug abuse epidemic, distinctive drug effects on the adolescent brain, and trends from synthetic cannabinoids to e-cigarettes. "Lively, highly informative, unbiased, [and] thorough" (Addiction Research & Theory), this no-nonsense handbook surveys the most used and abused drugs from caffeine to heroin to methamphetamine. In both quick-reference summaries and in-depth analysis, it reports on how these drugs enter the body, how they manipulate the brain, their short-term and long-term effects, the different "highs" they produce, and the circumstances in which they can be deadly. Neither a "just say no" treatise nor a "how-to" manual, Buzzed is based on the conviction that people make better decisions with accurate information in hand
Neuronal Degeneration in the Cingulated Gyrus: NMDC Antagonists and Anticholinesterases( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The key objective of these studies is to determine the neurotoxic risk of combining acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs) and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor blockers. In this year of study we found: 1) The histopathological effect of the non-competitive NMDA antagonist MK-801 is ameliorated by co-exposure to the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, pyridostigmine bromide in rats; however neurotoxicity is exacerbated by Co exposure to the AChEI, physostigmine. 2) The NMDA receptor antagonists: dextromethorphan and felbamate do not induce neurotoxicity in exposed animals, nor does co-exposure of these compounds to pyridostigmine bromide induce detectable neurotoxicity. 3) The NMDA receptor antagonist, memantine induces a neurotoxic response visualized by positive Fluoro-Jade-B stain in mature female rats; this effect is exacerbated by pyridostigmine bromide. Several animals died with these drug combinations, suggesting this is a toxic combination. 4) The resultant neuropathology in MK-801 and memantine exposed animals is in good agreement with the behavioral deficits exhibited by animals exposed to these compounds. 5) Combined exposure of memantine and PB had a greater effect on IPSPs than did memantine or PB alone
