The effects of 24-hr fasting on the vertical (VMA) and horizontal (HMA) locomotor activities, on cage climbing activity and on brain monoamine-related substances, were examined using male ddY mice. Both the VMA and HMA increased with fasting, but not the cage climbing activity. Methamphetamine (2 mg/kg, SC) increased the VMA and HMA in both the feeding and(More)
The arsenic trioxide (AsT) content, and monoamine levels in the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, hypothalamus and corpus striatum were determined in mice administered AsT (3 and 10 mg/kg) for 14 days. The vertical and horizontal motor activity was also examined. The AsT content in discrete brain areas differed but was clearly dose-dependent. Metabolites of(More)
The circadian peripheral clock is entrained by restricted feeding (RF) at a fixed time of day, and insulin secretion regulates RF-induced entrainment of the peripheral clock in mice. Thus, carbohydrate-rich food may be ideal for facilitating RF-induced entrainment, although the role of dietary oils in insulin secretion and RF-induced entrainment has not(More)
Acute and long-lasting effects of peripheral injection of caerulein (CLN) and cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) on the gamma-aminobutylic acid (GABA) content and the GABA accumulation by aminooxyacetic acid (AOAA) in the discrete brain regions of mice were examined. The content and accumulation of GABA in the striatum, hypothalamus, and frontal cortex was(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this cross-over, randomized, single-blinded trial was to examine whether intra-esophageal acidification induces sleep bruxism (SB). Polysomnography with electromyogram (EMG) of masseter muscle, audio-video recording, and esophageal pH monitoring were performed in a sleep laboratory. Twelve healthy adult males without SB participated.(More)
