The existence of the mu rhythm and its general anatomical and physiological relationships are well known. There are few data, however, regarding the details of its anatomical and physiological specificity. We implanted fronto-temporal subdural electrode grids in 9 patients with intractable epilepsy to facilitate their surgical management. A 7-11 Hz cortical(More)
We present JAWAA 2.0, a scripting language for creating animations easily over the web. JAWAA includes primitives, easy creation of data structures and operations on these structures, and an editor for easy creation of complex objects. We show how to use JAWAA in a range of computer science courses including CS 0, CS 1, CS 2 and advanced courses.(More)
The description of new dopamine (DA) receptor subtypes, D1-(D1 and D5) and D2-like (D2A, D2B, D3, D4), has given an impetus to DA research. While selective agonists and antagonists are not generally available yet, the receptor distribution in the brain suggests that they could be new targets for drug development. Binding characteristics and second messenger(More)
The present study examined the role of D1 and D2 receptors in mediating locomotor activity induced by dopamine (DA) agonists after injection into the nucleus accumbens (Acb). The D1 receptor agonist SKF38393 (as the racemic mixture) induced a dose-related increase in activity when injected bilaterally (1-10 micrograms/side). At a dose of 1 microgram/side,(More)
It has been shown that enhancing the function of the major inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA decreases glutamatergic activity in the brain. Since increased glutamatergic activity is the major primary event that results in cell death following an acute hypoxic-ischaemic stroke, GABAmimetic drugs might therefore be expected to be neuroprotective.

The pharmacological properties of a novel selective 5-hydroxytryptamine1A (5-HT1A) receptor antagonist, NAD-299 [(R)-3-N,N-dicyclobutylamino-8-fluoro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzopyran-5-carboxamide hydrogen (2R,3R)-tartrate monohydrate] were examined in vitro and in vivo and compared with the reference 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, WAY-100635(More)
The kinetic properties of the accumulation of 3H-raclopride, a selective dopamine (DA) D-2 receptor antagonist, in mouse striatum in vivo was examined under various experimental conditions. The accumulation in striatum was saturable in contrast to that in cerebellum, which linearily increased with the dose. The specific binding of 3H-raclopride in the(More)
(1) The influence of various dopamine (DA) receptor agonists and antagonists on the kinetic properties of the specific binding of 3H(-)-N-n-propylnorapomorphine (NPA) in the mouse striatum in vivo was studied. The specific binding of 3H-NPA, defined as the difference between the radioactivity in the striatum and cerebellum, was completely antagonized by the(More)
Mice, administered haloperidol 3 mg/kg/day, in their drinking water for 21 days, were tested for their responsiveness to cholinergic and anticholinergic drugs 4 days after withdrawal from haloperidol (or vehicle). Haloperidol-treated animals administered methylhyoscine (1 mg/kg i.p.) and various doses of physostigmine (5 to 1215 microgram/kg) displayed(More)
In the present study the effect of acutely administered (-)-nicotine on locomotor activity was measured after direct bilateral microinjections into the nucleus accumbens (Acb) or into the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of rats. Intrategmental (-)-nicotine (either 0.02 or 2 micrograms/side) increased locomotor activity, the effect being greatest after the(More)
