Determining a child's chronological age and stage of maturation is particularly important in fields such as paediatrics, orthopaedics, and orthodontics, as well as in forensic and anthropological studies. Some systemic conditions can cause abnormal physiological maturation, and skeletal maturation is usually more delayed than dental maturation. The aim of(More)
Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) is capable of inhibiting the tachycardic responses elicited by sympathetic stimulation, but not by exogenous noradrenaline, in pithed rats pre-treated with desipramine. More recently, it has been shown that this cardiac sympatho-inhibitory response to 5-HT, mediated by prejunctional 5-HT1 receptors as well as putative(More)
Continuous infusions of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) inhibit the tachycardiac responses to preganglionic (C7-T1) sympathetic stimulation in pithed rats pretreated with desipramine. The present study identified the pharmacological profile of this inhibitory action of 5-HT. The inhibition induced by intravenous (i.v.) continuous infusions of 5-HT (5.6 microg x(More)
