Barbiturates acts primarily through activation of, or allosteric action
on, the GABAA chloride complex.  A reasonable starting point sort of
review was written by Richard Olsen from UCLA and was published in the
International Anesthesiology Clinics 26:254,1988.  You also might try a
chapter on intravenous anesthetics in one of the three major anesthesia
textbooks.  Most of the information that you are interested in was
procured in similar ways to the procedure you describe.
