    Department of Anesthesia, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA
    Stress 12:125-33. 2009
    ..The time-course of the enhancement was examined in the next two experiments. These experiments show that SEFL persists for at least 3 months...

    Vinuta Rau
    Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care, University of California, San Francisco, California 94143 0464, USA
    Anesthesiology 110:487-95. 2009
    ..Subsequent exposure to a single foot shock produces an enhanced fear response. This effect is akin to sensitized reactions shown by some post-traumatic stress disorder patients to cues previously associated with the traumatic event...
  3. pmc Gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha 4 subunit knockout mice are resistant to the amnestic effect of isoflurane
    Vinuta Rau

    Anesth Analg 109:1816-22. 2009
    ..GABA(A)-Rs containing the alpha4 subunit are highly concentrated in the hippocampus and thalamus, and when combined with delta subunits they mediate tonic inhibition, which is sensitive to low concentrations of isoflurane...

    Anesthesiology 110:834-48. 2009
    ..Postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis affects hippocampal function into adulthood; therefore, the authors tested the hypothesis that isoflurane affects long-term neurocognitive function via an effect on dentate gyrus neurogenesis...
