Afferent regulation of centrally generated activity is likely to be more complex than has been established. We show that a neuron that is an exteroceptor can also function as a proprioceptor. We study the Aplysia neuron B21. Previous data suggest that B21 functions as an exteroceptor during the radula closing/retraction phase of ingestive feeding. We show(More)
OBJECTIVES There are controversial opinions about the expediency of performance of the surgical angioplasty of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) and/or proximal segment of the right coronary artery (RCA) in rare cases of isolated lesion or with limited involving of distal coronary branches. One of the many fears restraining a wider performance of this(More)
The serotonergic metacerebral cells (MCCs) and homologous neurons in related mollusks have been extensively investigated within the context of feeding. Although previous work has indicated that the MCCs exert widespread actions, MCC modulation of sensory neurons has not been identified. We characterized interactions between the MCCs and a cell that is part(More)
Operation for mammary-coronary shunting was reproduced on experimental dogs. Myocardial perfusion during shunting was accomplished through a shunt, passing in the mammary artery and introduced into the distal part of the coronary artery through an incision. This allowed the use of extracorporeal circulation and the development of myocardial ischemia to be(More)
Left ventricle (LV) function and systemic hemodynamic changes after coronary artery embolization by 15 microns radioactive microspheres were studied in anesthetized rats. Selective coronary embolization was produced by microsphere injection during ascending aorta occlusion in closed chest animal by using "L"-shaped wire. Maximal pressure (Pmax) developed(More)
