Behavioral and electrophysiological features of sleep and wakefulness were studied in chronically implanted adult parakeets, Aratinga canicularis. Four states of vigilance were observed: (1) Wakefulness. It is divided into active and passive. During this state there are generalized motor manifestations which are more frequent and intense in active(More)
Individuals of Gopherus flavomarginatus, previously adapted to experimental conditions were chronically implanted for polygraphic recordings. Four different states of vigilance were observed:. Active wakefulness, quiet wakefulness, quiet sleep and active sleep. EEG was polymorphic and irregular showing a decreasing tendency in frequency and amplitude when(More)
To determine whether the antihypertensive effectiveness of lercanidipine was independent of the different cardiovascular risk levels. Patients with treated or untreated mild-to-moderate essential hypertension were included in a multicentre, prospective, non-comparative, open-label study. Patients received lercanidipine (10 mg/day, uptitrated to 20 mg/day)(More)
The exogenous application of salicylic acid (SA) not only protects plants against stress, but also enhances their growth and productivity. In this study, proliferating shoots of Cistus heterophyllus subsp. carthaginensis, an endangered plant species, were incubated in the presence of 0, 10, 100, and 1,000 μM SA for a period of 2 months. Overall growth,(More)
Cistus heterophyllus subsp. carthaginensis is an endemic and endangered species from the SE Mediterranean coastal region of Spain. Within the framework of the efforts aiming to species conservation, in vitro culture techniques could be of interest. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antioxidant capacity of C. heterophyllus shoot cultures as a(More)
Vitis vinifera L. cv. Monastrell calli were used to evaluate the effects of long-term exposure to different salicylic acid (SA) concentrations (0.00, 0.01, 0.10 and 1.00 mM) on cell growth and phenolic metabolism. The impaired cell growth caused by high SA concentrations after the first sub-culture of cells was reverted to normal growth even in the presence(More)
