Dual-sided Voltage-sensitive Dye Imaging of Leech Ganglia
Authors:  Yusuke Tomina and Daniel A. Wagenaar, date: 03/05/2018, view: 1175, Q&A: 0
In this protocol, we introduce an effective method for voltage-sensitive dye (VSD) loading and imaging of leech ganglia as used in Tomina and Wagenaar (2017). Dissection and dye loading procedures are the most critical steps toward successful ...

Pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-induced Convulsion Assay to Determine GABAergic Defects in Caenorhabditis elegans
Authors:  Shruti Thapliyal and Kavita Babu, date: 09/05/2018, view: 237, Q&A: 0
Pentylenetetrazole (PTZ) is a GABAA receptor antagonist and is used to monitor presynaptic defects in the release of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. PTZ is a competitive inhibitor of GABA, and prevents binding of GABA on the GABAA ...
