Membrane potential changes induced by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and 1,1-dimethyl-4-phenyl piperazinium (DMPP) were recorded from nodose ganglia (NG) by the sucrose-gap method. An amount of 0.002-0.5 mumol of the depolarizing agent was injected into the superfusion stream to the ganglion. Responses to 5-HT were also evoked(More)
1 The antagonist actions of quipazine on 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) receptors have been investigated in the rabbit isolated superior cervical ganglion and on the rat isolated spinal cord and stomach strip. 2 Changes in membrane potential induced by 5-HT or by the nicotinic agonist, 1,1-dimethyl-4-phenyl piperazinium (DMPP), were measured in the ganglion by(More)
1 The effects of raising or lowering [Ca(2+)](o) or [Mg(2+)](o) on potential changes evoked by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and by the nicotinic agonist, 1,1-dimethyl-4-phenyl piperazinium (DMPP) have been investigated.2 Changes in membrane potential were measured at the ganglion or in postganglionic axons by the sucrose-gap technique. The ganglionic response(More)
Potential changes in superior cervical ganglion cells evoked by 5-HT or the nicotinic agonist, dimethyl-phenyl piperazinium (DMPP), were recorded using the sucrose-gap method and a number of putative 5-HT antagonists tested for potency and selectivity. Selective blockade of 5-HT responses was produced by 5-HT itself and, in increasing order of potency, by(More)
Membrane potential changes evoked by 5-Ht and related substances were recorded by the sucrose-gap method from rabbit ganglia superfused with Krebs solution at 20 degrees C. A solution of the substance under test was injected into the superfusion stream. The activity of 23 substances was compared to that of 5-HT in respect of depolarizing capacity. 0.01(More)

Runners increase the risk of becoming hypothermic or hyperthermic by not training in heat before a hot-weather race and by ignoring their body' a warning signs while running. And once thermal injury occurs, diagnosis and treatment may vary according to who is in charge of the medical tent; discrepancies can be fatal.
