How to use

In Vitro:

Application of M1 PAM VU0453595 (3 μM) induces a transient increase in excitability of medium spiny neurons (MSNs).

In Vivo:

VU0453595 potentiates M1-mediated muscarinic long-term depression (mLTD). VU0453595 (1-10 mg/kg; i.p.) reverses behavioral deficits induced by repeated phencyclidine (PCP) administration.
