The effects of phencyclidine (PCP) (7.0, 11.7, 19.5, 32.6, and 54.4 mg/kg) on locomotor activity, stereotyped behavior (circling, backing up, and weaving frequency), and rotarod performance were evaluated. In addition, the frequency of other PCP-induced abnormal behaviors (head in corner, arched back, and cataleptic freeze) was determined. All doses of PCP(More)
We sought to identify whether reductions in cutaneous active vasodilation during simulated orthostasis could be assigned solely to cardiopulmonary or to carotid baroreflexes by unloading cardiopulmonary baroreceptors with low levels of lower body negative pressure (LBNP) or unloading carotid baroreceptors with external pressure applied over the carotid(More)
A specific inhibitor of proteoglycan synthesis was administered to chicks undergoing the development of form deprivation myopia in order to test the hypothesis that increases in proteoglycan synthesis are responsible for normal and/or deprivation-induced ocular elongation in chicks. Chicks undergoing monocular form deprivation were treated with(More)
Emergence of androgen-independent cancer cells during androgen deprivation therapy presents a significant challenge to successful treatment outcomes in prostate cancer. Elucidating the role of androgen deprivation in the transition from an androgen-dependent to an androgen-independent state may enable the development(More)
A variety of congenital syndromes affecting the face occur due to defects involving the first and second BAs. Radiographic evaluation of craniofacial deformities is necessary to define aberrant anatomy, plan surgical procedures, and evaluate the effects of craniofacial growth and surgical reconstructions. High-resolution CT has proved vital in determining(More)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To date, no systematic evaluation of image quality has been performed on the 256-section multidetector CT scanner for extracranial carotid evaluations. We evaluated image quality, patient dose, and examination time and compared these parameters with a 64-section multidetector CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed extracranial CTA(More)
To test the hypothesis that cutaneous active vasodilation in heat stress is mediated by a redundant cholinergic cotransmitter system, we examined the effects of atropine on skin blood flow (SkBF) increases during heat stress in persons with (CF) and without cystic fibrosis (non-CF). Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) has been implicated as a mediator of(More)
Pregnant female Sprague-Dawley rats were treated from day 12 through day 15 of gestation with procarbazine, an antineoplastic drug, and their offspring were subjected to tests of locomotor development and behavior. Treatment levels ranged from 0.5 mg/kg/day, a dose that produced no abnormalities, to 10 mg/kg/day, a dose that caused a marked micrencephaly in(More)
