We have previously shown that the physiological and behavioral manifestations of emotional stress are produced when drugs impairing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-mediated synaptic inhibition are injected into the posterior hypothalamic nucleus in rats [Wible, J.H., Jr., F.C. Luft, and J.A. DiMicco. Am. J. Physiol. 254 (Regulatory Integrative Comp. Physiol.(More)
A single intraperitoneal injection of tetanus toxin (50,100 and 200 minimum lethal dose per rat) produced a significant and dose-dependent increase in systemic blood pressure and heart rate in conscious rats. On the contrary, tetanus toxin, given directly into the third cerebral ventricle (20 and 40 minimum lethal dose), produced a gradual and(More)
Since no information is available concerning the action of pirenzepine in vivo on human tracheobronchial tree, we evaluated the respiratory responses to pirenzepine in a group of healthy subjects. This clinical study suggests that pirenzepine exerts its bronchodilatory action on small airways (from 9th generation to distal airways), but not on larger(More)
In conscious rats with normal arterial blood pressure or with spontaneous or DOC induced hypertension, effects of drugs increasing (cycloserine, ethanolamine-o-sulphate, piracetam, chlordesmethyldiazepam) or depressing (bicuculline, Ro 15-1788, PK 11195) GABAergic reactivity were evaluated on the arterial hypotension and sinus bradycardia induced by(More)
The effects of cefazolin, a semisynthetic cephalosporin, on rat behavior, electrocortical activity and on electrocortical spectrum power were evaluated. In addition, the possible antagonism by some antiepileptic agents was studied. Cegazolin, given intravenously in rats, produced generalized convulsions, electrocortical high-voltage spikes and other(More)
In rats with cannulae chronically implanted into specific areas of the brain, the effects of beta-endorphin were studied on behavior and electrocortical activity. It has been shown that analgesia and catatonia were evoked after infusing beta-endorphin into the III cerebral ventricle or into the hypothalamus. On the contrary, beta-endorphin microinjected(More)
The rats systemic administration of tolonidine in rats (0.05-5.0 mumol/Kg) produced behavioural and electrocortical slow-wave sleep lasting between 35 and 200 min depending on the dose. In addition, a dose-dependent fall in deep body temperature was observed. Similar effects were evoked by infusing tolonidine (5-80 nmol) into the third cerebral ventricle.(More)
