..." explains Ken Solt, MD, of the MGH Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine, corresponding author of the report. "Clinically, emergence from general anesthesia is still a passive process during which we just wait for the drugs to wear off and the patient to wake up, a process that can take from a few minutes to an hour or longer. Finding a way to safely arouse patients from anesthesia could both improve operating room efficiency and, even more importantly, may reduce problems such as postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction."
...were produced by increased dopamine release from the VTA," says Solt, an assistant professorprofessor of Anæsthesia at Harvard Medical School. "Now we need to investigate the specific role of dopamine neurons and whether activating those cells could help prevent or treat postoperative problems."

"Subtypes of nAChRs are present in both the central and peripheral nervous systems, but the distribution of subtypes is heterogeneous. For instance, the subtypes which are predominant in vertebrate brain are .alpha.4.beta.2, .alpha.7, and .alpha.3.beta.2, whereas those which predominate at the autonomic ganglia are .alpha.3.beta.4 and those of neuromuscular junction are .alpha.1.beta.1.delta gamma. and .alpha.1.beta.1.delta..epsilon. (see for instance Dwoskin et al., Exp. Opin . Ther. Patents 10: 1561 (2000); and Schmitt and Bencherif, Annual Reports in Med. Chem. 35: 41 (2000))."
