Electroencephalographic (EEG) seizures were measured in rats after intrahippocampal injection of 120 nmol quinolinic acid into the stratum radiatum CA1 or 0.19 nmol kainic acid in the dentate gyrus or in the stratum radiatum. Injection of 5 micrograms SMS 201-995, a peptidase-resistant cyclic octapeptide analogue of somatostatin, into the stratum radiatum,(More)
Uraemic patients have a bleeding tendency thought to be due to platelet functional abnormalities, but haemodialysis paradoxically exposes patients to the thrombotic complications of arteriovenous shunts. Possible treatments of the latter have been debated. The effect of 100 mg/m2 aspirin on haemostatic function was studied in 29 uraemic patients on chronic(More)
Visual feature binding-the mechanism by which our typically coherent and unified perceptual experience arises from distributed neural representations-is the source of much intrigue in the neuroscience of perception. Surprisingly, feature binding can occur in rapidly alternating displays of color-orientation combinations (e.g., rightward-orange,(More)
Surface segregation provides an efficient way to parse the visual scene for perceptual analysis. Here, we investigated the segregation of a bivectorial motion display into transparent surfaces through a psychophysical task and fMRI. We found that perceptual transparency correlated with neural activity in the early areas of the visual cortex, suggesting(More)
We investigated whether modifications in noradrenergic neurotransmission occurred during the development of hippocampal kindling in rats. We measured the release of [3H]norepinephrine (NE) induced by field-electrical stimulation, NE-stimulation of inositol phosphates [( 3H]IP) accumulation in the presence of LiCl and isoproterenol-induced accumulation of(More)
