Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a chronic form of orthostatic intolerance, has signs and symptoms of lightheadedness, loss of vision, headache, fatigue, and neurocognitive deficits consistent with reductions in cerebrovascular perfusion. We hypothesized that young, normocapnic POTS patients exhibit abnormal cerebral autoregulation (CA) that results in(More)
Neurocognition is impaired in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). We propose that the impairment relates to postural cerebral hemodynamics. Twenty-five CFS subjects and twenty control subjects underwent incremental upright tilt at 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, and 75° with continuous measurement of arterial blood pressure and cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV). We used(More)
Autoradiographic studies localize [3H]bradykinin receptor binding sites to the substantia gelatinosa, dorsal root, and a subset of small cells in both the dorsal root and trigeminal ganglia of the guinea pig. [3H]Bradykinin labeling is also observed over myocardial/coronary visceral afferent fibers. The localization of [3H]bradykinin receptors to(More)
CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) is commonly co-morbid with POTS (postural tachycardia syndrome). Individuals with CFS/POTS experience unrelenting fatigue, tachycardia during orthostatic stress and ill-defined neurocognitive impairment, often described as 'mental fog'. We hypothesized that orthostatic stress causes neurocognitive impairment in CFS/POTS(More)

Effect of the self-monitoring approach on exercise maintenance during cardiac rehabilitation: A randomized, controlled trial. Objective: To evaluate the effect of the self-monitoring approach (SMA) on self-efficacy for physical activity (SEPA), exercise maintenance, and objective physical activity level over a 6-mo period after a supervised 6-mo cardiac(More)
The phrase "synaptic modulation," to describe a role of neurotropic peptides, has been used in a number of different ways by a number of different investigators. Using the phrase in its original context, i.e. altered (increased or decreased) synaptic excitability without reference to site or mode of action, evidence is presented that substance P modulates(More)
It has been shown that a variety of stressful procedures, such as immobilization and footshock, can induce a significant degree of analgesia in mice. In addition, it has been shown that for some, but not all, stressful treatments, the analgesic effect is mediated via endogenous opioids. This report describes the effects of substance P, administered(More)
