Although the mesoderm itself is induced at the blastula stage, its subdivision mainly occurs in response to further inductive signals during gastrulation. In the late blastula, most of the mesoderm has a ventral-type commitment except for the small organizer region which extends about 30 degrees on each side of the dorsal midline. During gastrulation,(More)
Rats were injected stereotactically in mesencephalon with 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine (5,7-DHT) in the medial 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) pathway (n = 8) and in the medial plus the lateral 5-HT pathways (n = 7) or injected with vehicle (n = 8), or sham-operated (n = 8). The 5,7-DHT lesions reduced the in vitro 3H-5-HT uptake in the hypothalamus and the cortex(More)
The risk of drug interactions with concurrent use of multiple medications is a clinically relevant issue. Many patients are unaware that over-the-counter (OTC) analgesics can cause potentially serious adverse effects when used in combination with other common medications such as anticoagulants, corticosteroids, or antihypertensive agents. Of particular(More)
Although somatosensory evoked potentials are being used in the evaluation of spinal cord injury and the monitoring of cord function during surgical procedures, their limitations in the face of fluctuations in blood pressure await further clarification. To study the effect of hypotension upon spinal cord blood flow (SCBF) and spinal evoked potentials (SEPs),(More)
