We studied the effects of chronic intoxication with the heavy metals lead (Pb2+) and zinc (Zn2+) on memory formation in mice. Animals were intoxicated through drinking water during the pre- and postnatal periods and then tested in the step-through inhibitory avoidance memory task. Chronic postnatal intoxication with Pb2+ did not change the step-through(More)
The aqueous extract (AE) of Erythrina velutina prolonged the sleep duration induced by sodium pentobarbital (control: 6.4 +/- 1.2 min; extract 10 mg/kg, 47.1 +/- 3.9 min; extract 100 mg/kg, 109.4 +/- 7.2 min; F = 243, P < 0.001). In the open field, the extract at the doses of 10 and 50 mg/kg did not changed the number of crossings, rearings nor groomings.(More)
Plectranthus spp (Lamiaceae) are plants of economic importance because they are sources of aromatic essential oils and are also cultivated and several species of this genus are used as folk medicines. This paper describes the effects of different concentrations of the 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) on the induction(More)
In this paper we discuss architectural aspects of middleware for grid computing based on an infrastructure of distributed clusters and/or distributed services, an access portal for a demonstration project in progress. We observe, in recent works, activities in the direction of open service architectures for grid services and for web services. We also see(More)
