Study debunks century-old concept of how anesthesia works
from Weill Cornell Medicine
From March 9:
Anesthesia induces unconsciousness by changing the function of proteins that reside on the surface of a thin membrane that forms a barrier around all cells, according to new research. The findings challenge a century-old concept of how anesthetics work, and may help guide the development of new agents associated with fewer side effects. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
