Each subject was studied before and after taking pirenzepine, 100 mg/day, for 3 days. Half and complete gastric emptying times of clear liquid, assessed by epigastric impedance, were significantly delayed by the drug: 6.16 +/- 1.74 min and(More)

Time-shared high speed cyclic voltametry using carbon fibre multibarrelled microelectrodes was used to monitor the concentration of 5-Hydroxytryptamine administered by iontophoresis to locations in lamina V of Sm l neocortex and to record spontaneous neuronal spike activity. In the absence of 5-Hydroxytryptamine at any one recording location the firing of(More)
