The role of subcortical attentional processing was investigated under exogenous and endogenous cueing conditions. As retinotectal projections arise predominantly from the nasal retina i.e., temporal hemifield, subcortical attention should be distributed asymmetrically under monocular viewing conditions with a temporal hemifield advantage. We compared the(More)
Caffeine injected at doses of 20, 40 and 80 mg/kg increased brain levels of tryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid (5-HIAA) in rat brain. In view of a possible role of 5-HT in caffeine-induced depression the effects of repeated administration of high doses of caffeine on brain 5-HT metabolism are investigated in rats.(More)
Control of ion energy distributions (IEDs) onto the surface of wafers is an ongoing challenge in microelectronics fabrication. The use of capacitively coupled plasmas (CCPs) using multiple radio frequency (rf) power sources provides many opportunities to customize IEDs. In dual-frequency CCPs using a fundamental frequency and its second harmonic, varying(More)
The effects of 5 mg kg-1 diacetyl morphine (DAM) on brain serotonin metabolism of rats were investigated following tolerance to the antinociceptive effects of 2.5 mg kg-1 DAM. Brain levels of tryptophan and 5-hydroxy indoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) were higher in the DAM-tolerant rats killed 24 h after last daily administration of 2.5 mg kg-1 DAM. Administration(More)
