Enhanced amplitude reduction of somatosensory evoked potentials by voluntary movement in the elderly.
We studied the effects of aging on modification of the median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) by voluntary movement in 17 aged (66.5 +/- 8.9 years, mean +/- SD) and 12 young normalExpand

Abnormal baroreceptor-mediated vasopressin release as possible marker in early diagnosis of multiple system atrophy.
BACKGROUND Although autonomic failure (AF) is a critical symptom of multiple system atrophy (MSA), it may not appear until late in the disease process. OBJECTIVES To clarify whether a detailedExpand

Effects of glutamic acid relatives on the electrical activity of an identified molluscan giant neurone (achatina fulica férussac)
Effects of glutamic acid and its relatives were examined on the electrical activity of two kinds of neurones (the PON, periodically oscillating neurone, and the TAN, tonically autoactive neurone)Expand

Classification of GABA receptors in snail neurones.
The present study aimed to elucidate the pharmacological features of GABA receptors on identifiable neurones of Achatina fulica Férussac by testing the effects of GABA analogues, muscimol,Expand

Pharmacologic characteristics of excitatory gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA) receptors in a snail neuron.
1. The pharmacologic characteristics of excitatory gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors, termed muscimol II type GABA receptors, found in a giant neuron type, v-LCDN (ventral-left cerebralExpand

Significance of cognitive function in the elicitation of sympathetic skin response in healthy humans.
The sympathetic skin response (SSR) is used as an index of sudomotor sympathetic function. However, the central processing of this response is not fully understood. To clarify this point, we assessedExpand

The validity of a hyperventilation test for an investigation of autonomic failure: assessment in patients with multiple system atrophy and Parkinson's disease
Although heart rate (HR) responses to hyperventilation (HV) have been used as a cardiovascular autonomic function test, autonomic involvement during HV remains uncertain. To clarify the relationshipExpand

Improvement of cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction following anti–copper therapy in Wilson’s disease
Sirs: Detailed autonomic function tests (AFTs) have recently revealed significant abnormalities in almost one-third of patients with Wilson’s disease (WD) [1–4]. However, the time course andExpand

Structure-activity relationships of GABA and its relatives on the excitability of an identified molluscan giant neurone (Achatina fulica Férussac).
Abstract 1. A spontaneously firing giant neurone (the TAN, tonically autoactive neurone) sensitive to GABA (inhibition) was identified in the subesophageal ganglia of Achatina fulica Ferussac. TheExpand
