Decreased GABA function in the hypothalamus increases mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR). Since ethanol acts on GABA-A receptors, blocking GABA-A receptors can prevent a decrease of MAP and HR by ethanol in the lateral hypothalamus (LH). Ethanol at 5-30 mM, with or without 25 ng/microl bicuculline, was infused into the LH, and the activity of(More)
The survival of rat postnatal mesencephalic dopamine (DA) neurons in dissociated cell cultures was studied by examining the combinatorial effects of dibutyryl cyclic adenosine monophosphate (db-cAMP), glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), as well as selective inhibitors of protein kinase A (PKA),(More)

Brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) is an invasive, polyphagous pest that has been detected in 42 U.S. states. In 2010, it caused millions of dollars in crop damages to apple growers on the East Coast, where it arrived from Asia during the 1990s. In 2002, BMSB was reported in California; since then, it has been detected in 28 counties and is established in at(More)
A pest management decision to initiate a control treatment depends upon an accurate estimate of mean pest density. Presence-absence sampling plans significantly reduce sampling efforts to make treatment decisions by using the proportion of infested leaves to estimate mean pest density in lieu of counting individual pests. The use of sequential hypothesis(More)
