Physiological responses associated with feigned death in the American opossum.
Heart rate, respiratory rate and body temperature of four free-ranging American opossums, Didelphis marsupialis of both sexes (2.47 +/- 0.27 kg; mean +/- SE), were monitored during mild provocation… Expand

Nine alligators, Alligator mississippiensis, were injected with 133Xe and the clearance half times measured in response to heating and cooling. Mean half times for thermostable, heating, and cooling… Expand
Atropine Effect on Fear Bradycardia of the Eastern Cottontail Rabbit, Sylvilagus floridanus
Abstract Multichannel transmitters were surgically implanted in the abdominal cavity of five mature eastern cottontail rabbits, Sylvilagus floridanus, and the heart rate response to fear… Expand

Pulmonary ventilation and arterial blood acid-base balance were measured in six unanesthetized alligators, Alligator mississipiensis, at 15, 25, and 35 degree C. The animals exhibited pronounced… Expand
Acute toxicity of methanol in the folate-deficient acatalasemic mouse.
Formate acidosis is the chief measurable biochemical characteristic of acute methanol toxicity in man. Its marked elevation in the blood stream of primates has been proposed to account for their much… Expand
Control of fear bradycardia in the swamp right, Sylvilagus aquaticus.
Abstract 1. 1. Biotelemetry transmitters were surgically implanted into the abdominal cavity of each of 9 mature swamp rabbits, Sylvilagus aquaticus, and the heart rate response to threatening… Expand
Various pharmacokinetic parameters in relation to enzyme-inducing abilities of 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene and 1,2,4-tribromobenzene.
1,2,4-Trichlorobenzene (TCB) and 1,2,4-tribromobenzene (TBB) were administered for 7 d to rats at a dose of 1 mmol/kg.d. The animals were sacrificed at various times to observe the decline in enzyme… Expand
Effect of atropine on the onset of fear bradycardia in Eastern cottontail rabbits Sylvilagus floridanus.
Abstract 1. Biotelemetry transmitters were surgically implanted in the abdominal cavity of six mature eastern cottontail rabbits, Sylvilagus floridanus , and the effect of atropine on the rate of… Expand

Abstract o 1. Heart and respiration rates were lower and less variable during darkness (127·4 ± 1·92 S.E. heart beats/min and 30·1 ± 0·76 SE breaths/min) than during light conditions (166·6 ± 7·13… Expand
Induction of xenobiotic metabolism in rat liver by chlorinated biphenyl ether isomers.
Chlorinated diphenyl ether isomers were administered to rats at doses of 10 mumols/kg/day po for 3 days. Decachlorodiphenyl ether caused increases in EPN detoxification, NADPH cytochrome c reductase… Expand
