The influence of different drugs on the thermotropic properties of calf-brain lipids was investigated. Tetracaine, ethanol and ketamine caused a downward shift in the temperature of the maximum in the heat flow, with almost no change in the enthalpy of melting of the lipids. However, cannabinoids caused a decrease in the enthalpy of melting, accompanied by a minor shift in the melting temperature. The effect of cholesterol on drug interactions was also investigated.
