The possibility that nicotine-induced corticosterone (CCS) release regulates nicotine sensitivity was investigated in female mice of the C3H strain. Adrenalectomy (ADX) resulted in an increase in nicotine sensitivity as measured in a number of physiological and behavioral tests. In ADX animals, chronic CCS (100 micrograms/ml) administered in the drinking(More)
The present study examined current and lifetime psychiatric morbidity, chest pain, and health care utilization in 229 patients with noncardiac chest pain (NCCP), angina-like pain in the absence of cardiac etiology. Diagnostic interview findings based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (4th ed.; DSM-IV; American Psychiatric(More)
The effects of cocaine on Y-maze activity and heart rate have been examined in four inbred strains of mouse (BALB, C57BL, C3H and DBA). In addition, brain [3H]-cocaine concentrations were measured at the time of maximal response to cocaine. Cocaine produced a dose-related increase in Y-maze cross activity in C3H, DBA and C57BL, with C3H mice being(More)
Changes in plasma corticosterone (CCS) levels following intraperitoneal injections of nicotine were measured in four inbred mouse strains: DBA/2Ibg, C57BL/6Ibg, C3H/2Ibg, and A/J. In all four strains, nicotine produced a dose-dependent (0.5-2.0 mg/kg nicotine) increase in plasma CCS levels which peaked 10-30 min after injection. Saline increased plasma CCS(More)
Adult mice of four inbred strains (A, BUB, C57BL, DBA) and two selectively bred lines [Long-Sleep (LS) and Short-Sleep (SS)] were tested for differences in glucocorticoid regulation of nicotine sensitivity. One week following adrenalectomy (ADX), animals were tested for nicotine sensitivity in a battery of tests that included acoustic startle response,(More)
INTRODUCTION The structure of the interview day affects applicant interactions with faculty and residents, which can influence the applicant's rank list decision. We aimed to determine if there was a difference in matched residents between those interviewing on a day on which didactics were held and had increased resident and faculty presence (didactic day)(More)
BACKGROUND Symptoms of acute vestibular syndrome include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and postural instability. The cause may be a peripheral or central lesion. Distinguishing between these two causes is critical because the treatments differ completely. One bedside test to help make this distinction clinically is the head impulse test (HIT), sometimes(More)
In order to examine possible selectivity of amine uptake by synaptic vesicles, the ATP-stimulated accumulation of 3H-5-hydroxytryptamine (5HT) by synaptic vesicles from rat whole brain was examined in a medium comprised largely of membrane-impermeant anions (d-tartrate). Such media have previously been shown to stabilize vesicular accumulation of several(More)
