Genetic Algorithms as an Approach to Configuration and Topology Design The genetic algorithm, a search and optimization technique based on the theory of natural selection, is applied to problems of structural topology design. An overview of the genetic algorithm will first describe the genetics-based representations and operators used in a typical genetic(More)
Background activity of spinoreticular tract neurons in the T1-T4 segments was on average inhibited 80% by electrical stimulation of nucleus raphe magnus. Nucleus raphe magnus stimulation inhibited responses of spinoreticular tract neurons to somatic input produced by touching the skin and hair (innocuous stimulus) or pinching the skin and muscle (noxious(More)
Dose-dependent effects of phencyclidine on extracellular levels of dopamine (DA), dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA) in the neostriatum were studied in both urethane-anesthetized and conscious rats. In vivo microdialysis was used to collect 10 min samples that were analyzed for levels of DA, DOPAC and HVA, using high-performance(More)
The effects of N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) and phencyclidine (PCP) on extracellular levels of dopamine (DA) and dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) in the striatum of the rat were studied using in vivo microdialysis. Intrastriatal infusion of NMDA produced a significant dose-dependent increase in extracellular DA and a decrease in concentrations of(More)
Haloperidol-induced dopamine (DA) release and metabolism were studied in the rat striatum at 10-11, 21-22, and 35-36 days of age using intracerebral dialysis and HPLC with electrochemical detection. There was an age-related increase in basal DA release and extracellular levels of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA), with the(More)
