The innervation of porcine testes was studied in intact animals and in boars undergoing active immunization against gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) by means of immunohistochemistry using antibodies to tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), dopamine beta-hydroxylase (D beta H), vasoactive intestinal polypolypeptide (VIP), neuropeptide Y (NPY),(More)
Twenty-one patients completed an intensive in-patient and out-patient group-based programme, to achieve withdrawal from long-term benzodiazepine dependence. By 6-month follow-up (post-withdrawal), eight patients (38%) had achieved a 'good' outcome. Generally, patients demonstrated moderate levels of psychiatric morbidity and depression in the pre-withdrawal(More)
Three feeding groups were used: the control (SOY) was fed diets without rapeseed products, and the two experimental groups were fed with either 10% rapeseed meal (RSM) or with 12% OO rape seeds (PFRS). Half of the boars from each group were slaughtered after 1 or 2 years. In RSM and PFRS boars steroid-3-beta-ol-dehydrogenase activity was high, whilst Leydig(More)
Platelet 5-HT uptake sites were measured in 40 depressed patients and 40 controls using [3H] imipramine binding, defined with desmethylimipramine (DMI) and Na+ dependence, and [3H] paroxetine binding. In control subjects the Bmax of DMI defined [3H] imipramine binding was significantly higher than both Na+ dependent [3H] imipramine (by 30%) and [3H](More)
A series of 100 consecutive psychiatric in-patients who absconded from a psychiatric hospital a total of 231 times over ten months was studied. The reasons given for absconding, duration of absence, and mode of return are described. The legal status and ethnic origins of absconders differed significantly from those of the base hospital population.
Currently, unmanned vehicles support soldiers in a variety of military applications. Typically, a specially-trained user teleoperates these platforms using a large and bulky Operator Control Unit (OCU). The operator's total attention is required for controlling the tedious, low-level aspects of the platform, dramatically reducing his personal situational(More)
A new instrument, the Person's Relating to Others Questionnaire (PROQ), based upon a circular ordering of eight modes of relating, constructed around the two dimensions of Closeness-Distance and Upperness-Lowerness, is used to measure the negative and positive relating of depressed patients. It is shown that patients, compared with population subjects,(More)
Two instruments, the Self Rating Questionnaire and the Interpersonal Dependency Inventory, were used to examine further the relationship between dependence and depression. Dependence scores on both measures correlated highly with scores on measures of neuroticism, self-esteem, depressive cognition and depression. Dependence scores were significantly higher(More)
