Behavioral neuropharmacology. Atimpamezole (0.1-1.0 mg/mL) was dissolved in 50-100% DMSO and was injected systemically in rats. Atipamezole is highly selective for the alpha2- noradrenergic receptor, and was used as a reference compound during behaviral testing.
This comes out of solution easily, even with sonicating. After fully dissolving in DMSO, add water slowly and continue to vortex or sonicate.

Major depressive disorder is characterized by depressed mood and a loss of interest and/or pleasure. Updated in 2015 this poster highlights presynaptic and postsynaptic targets for the potential treatment of major depressive disorder, as well as outlining the pharmacology of currently approved antidepressant drugs.
Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
