Offspring from dams subjected to hypereninemia, hyperdipsia, and natriophilia by partial aortic ligation (PAL) showed a long-term modification of their ingestive behavior. These rats, upon reaching adulthood, showed an increased appetite for low-concentration saline solutions (0.1 M) when compared to control rats. They also presented a high intake of a(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the effects of an early high-salt environment on the maternal and the young offspring physiology and on the adult offspring sodium appetite. Twenty-five-adult female Wistar rats were pseudorandomly divided into two groups. Twelve animals underwent a partial ligature of their abdominal aorta (PAL). Once polydipsia and(More)
We tested the hypothesis that the pressor responses to angiotensin II could be influenced by an early salt exposure. Twenty-five adult female rats were pseudorandomly divided in two groups. Twelve animals underwent a partial ligature of their abdominal aorta (PAL). Once polydipsia and sodium appetite developed, these rats were mated. The other group (13(More)
BACKGROUND Cephalopods play a major role in marine ecosystems, but knowledge of their feeding ecology is limited. In particular, intra- and inter-individual variations in their use of resources has not been adequatly explored, although there is growing evidence that individual organisms can vary considerably in the way they use their habitats and resources.(More)
Developmental programming by maternal stress during pregnancy is found to influence behavioral development in the offspring. The main objective of this study was to investigate the effect of maternal sodium depletion in rats during pregnancy on the development of thirst mechanisms in the offspring. Pregnant rats underwent 3 episodes of saline depletion,(More)
The jumbo squid Dosidicus gigas plays an important role in marine food webs both as predator and prey. We investigated the ontogenetic and spatiotemporal variability of the diet composition of jumbo squid in the northern Humboldt Current system. For that purpose we applied several statistical methods to an extensive dataset of 3,618 jumbo squid non empty(More)
Female Wistar rats in any of the estrual phases have been shown to drink significantly more water than males (p < 0.05), after a single I.P. insulin injection (5 U/kg b.wt.). Sexual differences in insulin-induced drinking persisted after castration when it was made in adult rats (4.6 +/- 1.2 ml/2 h, males = 8; vs. 13.0 +/- 3.1 ml/2 h, females = 8; p <(More)
By means of standardized transcranial oblique lateral (TOL) radiographs, the position of the mandibular condyles in the glenoid fossae of 14 patients with Class II division 1 malocclusion was studied at the beginning of treatment with or without functional appliances placed in position, and also at the end of treatment. A significant increase in the(More)
