Recent theoretical and experimental findings suggest that biological olfactory systems utilize relative latencies or time-to-first spikes for fast odor recognition. These time-domain encoding methods exhibit reduced computational requirements and improved classification robustness. In this paper, we introduce a microcontroller-based electronic nose system(More)
The effects of naloxone hydrochloride and morphine sulfate on the proestrous surge of PRL and gonadotropins (LH and FSH) were investigated in normal cycling Sprague-Dawley rats. Blood samples (0.45-0.50 ml) were withdrawn without anesthesia every 20 min from 1400-2000 h through an atrial cannula implanted the same morning. RIA revealed that a single iv(More)
Changes in hypothalamic concentration and turnover index (TI) of norepinephrine (NE), dopamine (DA), and serotonin (5HT) were studied during the first estrous cycle at the onset of puberty. Rats were killed when 40% of the population showed open vaginas. They were classified according to the state of their reproductive tract and serum LH values, as in(More)
The effects of morphine (M) and naloxone (N) on serum levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and prolactin (PRL) in prepubertal male and female rats were investigated. N raised serum LH concentrations in female rats at 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 days of age, but increased serum LH levels in male prepubertal rats only at 30 days of age. M significantly depressed(More)
The role of growth hormone (GH) in modulating the adult immune response is receiving increased attention; however, its role in the development of immune competence in the fetus has not been defined. In order to begin to address the role of GH in the ontogeny of the immune response. cells from bovine fetal spleen and thymus were examined for GH receptor and(More)
