Flush is a common side effect of nicotinic acid therapy in patients. The effect is present as long as the level of nicotinic acid increases in the plasma. The mechanism of flush after nicotinic acid has been studied in the ears of guinea-pigs in vivo. The threshold dose of nicotinic acid (1-3 mg/kg) to raise the skin temperature of the ears and to increase(More)
To enhance understanding of neuropsychological processing underlying chemosensory event-related potentials (CSERPs), the objective of the present study was to compare CSERPs with auditory (AERPs) and visual event-related potentials (VERPs), and to approach the question of similarities in neuropsychological processing by means of correlation and cluster(More)
The relaxing effect of isoproterenol on aortic strips from rats decreases and disappears with increasing age of the animal. In aortas from young rats (1 month) the cAMP level increases after stimulation with isoproterenol (3.6 muM), whereas in old aortas (6 months) the cAMP level was unchanged. Basal and NaF stimulated adenyl cyclase activities are(More)
The relationship between cyclic AMP levels and mechanical activity after exposure to isoprenaline was studied in tracheal smooth muscle. It was found that the basal cyclic AMP content decreased with age. The relaxing effects of isoprenaline, theophylline and papaverine were tested on muscles contracted by histamine, acetylcholine or carbacholine.(More)
The study investigated whether the P600/SPS component is sensitive to the richness of semantic content in sentences. ERPs were recorded while 30 native Swedish speakers read sentences, of which half were syntactically correct and half contained a syntactic violation. Both kinds of sentences came in one of three types of descending semantic completeness:(More)
Olofsson, J. (2005). Gender differences in chemosensory function. This thesis consists of two studies, in which gender differences in nasal chemosensory function are investigated. The first study assesses odor identification ability in a population-based sample, varying from 45 to 90 yrs, screened for cognitive impairment and severe olfactory dysfunction.(More)
