The dissertation argues that discourse reference in natural language involves two equally important components with essentially the same interpretive dynamics, namely reference to values, i.e. non-singleton sets of objects (individuals and possible worlds), and reference to structure, i.e. the correlation / dependency between such sets, which is introduced(More)
In the present study we examined the influence of arginine vasopressin (AVP) on conditioned freezing behavior to aversive shock treatment by comparing the responses of Brattleboro homozygous (DI) rats, Brattleboro heterozygous (HZ) rats, and Long-Evans (LE) rats. Each animal was placed in a sound-attenuated shock chamber on the training day and given a(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive, global and functional instruments have been extensively investigated for correlations with neuropathological changes such as neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), plaques, and synapse loss in the brain. OBJECTIVE Our objective is to correlate the functional, global and cognitive decline assessed clinically with the neuropathological(More)
We investigated the influence of C-terminal fragments of oxytocin (OT) and arginine vasopressin (AVP) on conditioned freezing behavior. Subcutaneous injections of 0.3 microgram AVP(4-9) or OT(4-9) given to rats after shock training or before behavioral observation significantly altered fear-induced freezing behavior. Animals treated with OT hexapeptide(More)
