Enhanced GABA-A inhibition enhances synchrony coding in human perception
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2000-10-20)
The benzodiazepine, lorazepam enhances the efficiency of local, inhibitory GABAA synapses in the cortex, which stabilize postsynaptic, excitatory activity by synchronizing their own discharges at around 40 Hz. Treatment ...
Atypical behavioural effects of lorazepam: Clues to the design of novel therapies?
Aside from their pharmacokinetic properties, e.g. their speed of action and the duration of residual effects, benzodiazepines are still considered as equivalent in terms of their effects on cognition. Here we review evidence ...
New measures of functional (but not perceptual) continuity in visual grouping
(International Society for Psychophysics, 2004)
The benzodiazepine, Lorazepam enhances the efficiency of inhibitory GABA-A synapses in the cortex, which stabilize postsynaptic, excitatory activity by synchronizing their own discharges at around 40 Hz. Lorazepam treatment ...
Some facilitatory effects of lorazepam on dynamic visual binding
Rationale: The benzodiazepine lorazepam enhances the potential for inhibitory (GABAA) synapses in the cortex to stabilize postsynaptic, excitatory activity by synchronizing discharge rates at frequencies of around 40 Hz. ...
