Abstract
<p>Abstract</p> <p>Background</p> <p>The inferior colliculus, which receives almost all ascending and descending auditory signals, plays a crucial role in the processing of auditory information. While the majority of the recorded activities in the inferior colliculus are attributed to GABAergic and glutamatergic signalling, other neurotransmitter systems are expressed in this brain area including opiate peptides and their receptors which may play a modulatory role in neuronal communication.</p> <p>Results</p> <p>Using a perfusion protocol we demonstrate that morphine can inhibit KCl-induced release of [<sup>3</sup>H]GABA from rat inferior colliculus slices.
