Little is known about acetylcholine (ACh) modulation of central visual processing in humans. Receptor densities in visual brain regions are differentially distributed suggesting that receptor subtypes have different functions. Using PET, we have previously described the brain regions activated by a simple pattern-flash stimulus in healthy elderly subjects.(More)
We have compared the effects of methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and cocaine on contractions to noradrenaline in 1 Hz paced rat right ventricular strips, and in rat small mesenteric artery and aorta. Noradrenaline increased the force of contraction of 1 Hz paced ventricular strips with a pD(2) (-log EC(50)) of 5.64+/-0.07. Both cocaine (10 microM) and(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential of oral combined cannabis constituents to reduce nausea. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of combining subthreshold oral doses of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) on acute and anticipatory nausea in rat models of conditioned gaping. The potential of(More)
