Abstract

When injected into the septum of muricidal rats, the GABA agonist muscimol substantially reduces muricide latency and increases irritability. Muscimol injections into the dorsal raphe also reduce muricide latency, but such injections into the median raphe increase muricide latency. These raphe injections have no systematic effect on irritability. The GABAa antagonist bicucuUine has no consistent effect at any site.
