The effects of acute and chronic application of ketamine on the resting spontaneous motility, its development and reactivity was studied in chick embryos of white Leghorns. 1. Acute application of ketamine (Narcamon) in a dose of 12.5 mg/kg e.w. partially depressed spontaneous motility as early as in 11-day old chick embryos. From day 15 of incubation(More)
Development of the response of the auditory cortex to unilateral acoustic stimulation by a chick was studied in guinea-pig foetuses from the 50th day to the end of gestation and in newborn animals. The first cortical response appeared on the 52nd to 53rd day of gestation. The maximum responses were concentrated in the temporal cortex, between the(More)
Relationships between the activating effect of strychnine [1 mg.kg-1 egg weight] and picrotoxin [1 mg.kg-1 e.w.] and the inhibitory effect of glycine [100 mg.kg-1 e.w.] and gamma-aminobutyric acid [100 mg.kg-1 e.w.] were studied in normal and spinal 15- and 17-day chick embryos. All the substances were applied onto the embryonic membranes and the(More)
The longitudinal development of spontaneous motility in chick embryos was studied by Kovach's method (Kovach 1970) from the 10th day of incubation up to hatching, in completely intact eggs. From the 10th to 12th day of incubation, very low amplitude movements of a burst character predominated in spontaneous motility. From the 13th day, both low and high(More)
Changes in spontaneous motility were studied in 11- to 19-day-old chick embryos after acute and chronic decapitation. Chronic decapitation was performed on the 2nd day of incubation, at stage 11--14. Up to the 15th day, acute decapitation merely reduced the frequency of spontaneous movements. In 17-day embryos it was followed by typical spinal shock, with(More)
— This paper presents the design and implementation of second generation current conveyor CCII– in 0.35µm CMOS process. In the design, we intended to achieve very low output impedance of voltage buffer over wide frequency range, in order to comply with high requirements for laboratory instrumentation. Selected approach relies on the optimization of voltage(More)
The effect of chronic administration of phenobarbital (from the 4th to the 16th day of incubation) combined with chronic spinal decentralization (decapitation at stage 11-13) on the development of spontaneous motor activity (recorded on the 17th day of incubation) was studied in 4 to 17-day-old chick embryos. 1. Combination of the two experimental(More)
The consequences of the chronic continuous administration of Na+-phenobarbital in an average dose of 9.8 mg/kg e.w./24 h were studied in chick embryos. Administration was always started on the 4th day of incubation and lasted 4-12 days. Spontaneous motility was tested in 13- and 17-day-old embryos. The continuous, chronic administration of phenobarbital(More)
The activating effect of bicuculline on spontaneous central motor output activity was studied in chick embryos from the 11th to the 19th day of incubation by means of spontaneous motility. When applied onto the embryonic membranes, bicuculline [1 mg X kg-1 egg weight] significantly activated embryonic motility from the 15th day of incubation. In 15-day(More)
The developmentally conditioned changes in gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) activity in chick embryonic hemispheres, optic lobes, cerebellum, brain stem and in lumbar and brachial enlargements of the spinal cord were studied. A marked increase in GGT activity was found in all tissues between embryonic day 11 and hatching. The application of cortisol(More)
