1. The tachykinin substance P was recovered from the commissural subdivision of the nucleus tractus solitarii (cNTS) using in vivo microdialysis during activation of cardiorespiratory and skeletal muscle receptors in thirteen chloralose-anaesthetized cats. 2. Tetanic muscle contraction was evoked by stimulating L7-S1 ventral roots (n = 7). Electrically(More)
1. The purpose of this study was to determine if static skeletal muscle contraction causes the release of substance P(SP) in the L7-dorsal horn region of the spinal cord. A laminectomy was performed to expose the spinal cord of alpha-chloralose anaesthetized cats. The L6 spinal root was cut. A microdialysis probe was inserted into the L7 dorsal horn region(More)
The role for substance P (SP) in baroreceptor transmission in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) remains an area of active research. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether naturalistic activation of barosensitive afferent fibers in the glossopharygneal and vagus nerves release SP in the caudal NTS. Experiments were performed on(More)
Conventional electromyographic (EMG) guidance in botulinum toxin therapy can localize a muscle, but the amount of electrical activity is assessed only subjectively. We wanted to introduce a quantitative EMG criterion, according to which the decision for/against toxin application could be made. Turn/amplitude analysis (TAA) was applied to nine patients with(More)
The Met-enkephalin content in tissue micropunches of the substantia nigra zona compacta, ventral tegmental area and the caudate nucleus in BALB/c and CBA mouse strains was measured by radioimmunoassay. The CBA strain had significantly higher Met-enkephalin levels in all 3 regions than the BALB/c strain. These differences should be taken into account when(More)
