Table 1. Protocol and Calculations Used to Separate Overall Excitatory and Inhibitory Components of Synaptic Mechanisms

MAC = minimum alveolar concentration; GABAA=γ-aminobutyric acid receptor type A; BIC = bicuculline; eq. = equation; α=[Fe− Fcon]/Fe; Fe= peak discharge frequency of the neuron during complete GABAAergic block with BIC; Fcon= control peak discharge frequency during the prevailing basal conditions of GABAAergic inhibition (the level of prevailing GABAAergic inhibition is described by the inhibitory constant α—see text for details).
