Abnormal oral glucose tolerance in genetically obese (fa/fa) rats.
Irrespective of age, the obese rats had a normal blood glucose tolerance when glucose or tolbutamide load was given intravenously, whereas the glucose ingestion [oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) caused a marked glucose intolerance that became more pronounced with the duration of the syndrome.

Insulin: its relationship to the central nervous system and to the control of food intake and body weight.
The behavioral effects of insulin added to the brain, and especially its ability to reduce food intake and body weight, is discussed, and the implications to obesity are stressed. Expand
Evidence for a role of the gastric, coeliac and hepatic branches in vagally stimulated insulin secretion in the rat.
It is concluded that cervical vagal stimulation-induced insulin-secreting activity reaches the pancreas via all 3 abdominal divisions of the vagus nerve, and it is suggested that pancreatic beta-cells are innervated through all3 abdominal divisions. Expand
Central nervous system regulation of insulin secretion.
This chapter provides an overview of the information available on the regulation of insulin secretion by the central nervous system (CNS), and the hypothalamus is undoubtedly a crucial region of convergence but should not be viewed as possessing subdivisions necessarily endowed with opposing effects.

Non-steady-state measurement of glucose turnover in rats by using a one-compartment model.
It is concluded that in the rat the one-compartment model measures changes in glucose turnover with reasonable accuracy in non-steady-state conditions and that a pool fraction of 0.5 gives the best results. Expand
Pressure reversal of the action of octanol on postsynaptic membranes from Torpedo
This work has shown that the binding of [3H]‐acetylcholine to the desensitized state of the nicotinic receptor in postsynaptic membranes prepared from Torpedo californica is increased without any change in the number of sites or the shape of the acetyl choline binding curve. Expand
Actions of General Anesthetics on Acetylcholine Receptor-rich Membranes from Torpedo californica
Systematic deviations in the Torpedo model suggest that: 1) lipid solubility is not a sufficient criterion for activity in Torpede; 2) lipidsolubility inTorpedo membranes deviates from that at the anesthetic site; or 3) more than one effect underlies the binding assay. Expand
A simple electrode for intact nerve stimulation and/or recording in semi-chronic rats
A cuff electrode for extracellular nerve stimulation and/or recording is described. It can be made from common laboratory material without the need of special equipment, and consists of a tubularExpand
Vagal neurons and pathways to the rat's lower viscera: An electrophysiological study
The vagal pathways to the rat's pancreas are anatomically difficult to describe. A stimulation/recording technique has been used on various segments of the vagus to trace vagal pathways to the lowerExpand

Postganglionic fibers have been shown to be more resistant to N2O-narcosis than pre Ganglionic fibres, and to occur around 10.5 atm. Expand
