1. Studies on the urine outflow, blood ADH concentration and electrolyte excretion were carried out in alpha-chloralose anaesthetized hydrated dogs; the agonists and antagonists of specific cholinoceptors and adrenoceptors were injected by the intracerebroventricular technique, to delineate the role of the C.N.S. receptors in the control of ADH secretion.2.(More)
1. In unanaesthetized dogs, the emetic action of histamine was studied after its injection into the cerebral venricles through chronically implanted cannulae in order to elucidate the role of the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CT-zone), situated in the area postrema, for this emesis.2. On injection into the lateral cerebral ventricle, about 10 times larger(More)
1. In dogs anaesthetized with pentobarbitone sodium, bradycardia with hypotension occurred on intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of noradrenaline (50-200 mug) or phenylephrine (100-400 mug), but tachycardia with hypotension occurred on i.c.v. injection of isoprenaline (100-200 mug).2. These cardiovascular responses were central effects, and from the(More)
To determine whether carotid intima-media thickness is associated with coronary artery disease and cardiovascular risk factors in the Indian population, carotid intima-media thickness was measured using high-resolution B-mode ultrasonography in 101 patients with coronary artery disease and 140 control subjects. Carotid intima-media thickness was measured at(More)
The role of central histaminergic system in foot shock induced aggression was studied in mice. Histamine administered by intracerebral (IC) injection (25–200 μg) produced a significant increase in fighting episodes in a dose dependent manner. It was observed that mepyramine (H1 blocker) given intraperitoneally (IP) significantly increased and metiamide (H2(More)
1 The emetic action of Met-enkephalin, morphine and naloxone was studied following their administration into the cerebral ventricles of dogs through chronically implanted cannulae and the effect on the responses of ablating the chemorceptor trigger zone (CTZ) was investigated. The opiate antagonist, naloxone, was used to determine the role of enkephalin(More)
