The ability to cope with exercise training depends both on environmental and genetic background; however, whether the genetic status may affect (i) the hormonal status of trained subjects and, (ii) its responses to a heterotypic stressor is unknown. Herein, we have used Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats (SHR) and Lewis rats, that differ with regard to their(More)
The postexercise alteration in pulmonary gas exchange in high-aerobically trained subjects depends on both the intensity and the duration of exercise (G. Manier, J. Moinard, and H. Stoïcheff. J. Appl. Physiol. 75: 2580-2585, 1993; G. Manier, J. Moinard, P. Techoueyres, N. Varène, and H. Guénard. Respir. Physiol. 83: 143-154, 1991). In a recent study that(More)
Spontaneously hypertensive rats and Lewis rats differ in their anxiety levels and in their serotonergic and corticotropic responses to stress. Since the 5-HT transporter plays a key role in 5-HT neurotransmission, we have analyzed whether hippocampal and/or striatal [(3)H]5-HT reuptake kinetics are altered by stress in a strain-dependent manner. It was(More)
A diabetic woman underwent an incision of the right big toe for an abscess and developed a typical Guillain-Barré syndrome 48 h later. A biopsy of a peripheral nerve, performed 10 days later, showed modifications usually seen in diabetic patients, as well as the characteristic ultrastructural modifications of the Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Moreover, 22%(More)
Cough is a reflex phenomenon occurring when sensitive receptors located in the larynx and upper airways are activated. These receptors generate information which reaches the central nervous system. The central organization of the cough reflex loop is poorly understood. The afferent pathways originate in receptors situated under and between airway epithelial(More)
