Play-song-style renditions were rated as being more brilliant, clipped, and rhythmic and as having more smiling and more prominent consonants.(More)
Antisera were raised against tryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-methoxytryptophan, and 5-methoxytryptamine, by conjugating each molecule to bovine serum albumin and to human serum albumin via glutaraldehyde, in such a way as to preserve the original part. Antibody specificity was tested with the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method.(More)
Noradrenaline (NA) was conjugated to different protein carriers with glutaraldehyde. During the catecholamine conjugate synthesis, precautions were taken in order to preserve the structure of NA. Anti-NA antibodies were raised in rabbits and tested using a modified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunocytochemistry. The most immunoreactive antigen(More)
