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)
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 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)
Several data suggest that muscarinic M-1 receptors are located on airway smooth muscle of human beings and dogs. Muscarinic M-1 receptors, whose stimulation is associated with enhancement of acetylcholine release, may also be located in the airway parasympathetic ganglia. To determine if postsynaptic muscarinic M-1 receptors mediate airway constriction, the(More)
