Different dopaminergic mechanisms that could explain behavioral supersensitivity to amphetamine or apomorphine in REM-deprived rats were examined. Four days of REM sleep deprivation induced a highly significant elevation in striatal DOPAC relative to normal controls, but not to stress controls. DOPAC levels in frontal cortex were not affected in any of the(More)
It is well known that the number of follicles in the mammalian ovary decreases with age. In light of previous data from this laboratory showing age-related alterations in the secretion and production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in rats by 5-6 months of age, one objective of the present study was to determine if alterations in FSH secretion were(More)
Mentally retarded children were taught to discriminate the dimensions of a visual display using a matching-to-sample procedure that provided full verbal feedback of the reasons for successes and failures. A control group attempted the matching procedure but received no feedback. The trained subjects exhibited marked superiority in intradimensional transfer.(More)
The antischistosomal activity of oral doses of amoscanate (4-isothiocyanato-4'-nitrodiphenylamine) was determined in infected Cebus apella (capuchin monkeys) and Macaca mulatta (rhesus monkeys). In C. apella infected with Schistosoma japonicum or S. mansoni an initial dose of 10 mg/kg body weight did not alter fecal egg counts, but a subsequent dose of 25(More)
Administration of 4 nitro-4' isothiocyano-diphenylamine (CGP 4540, amoscanate) to two nonhuman primates, Macaca mulatta and Cebus apella, resulted in the appearance of mutagenic material in the urines of these animals. Mutagenic metabolites of this drug could also be detected in the urines when the drug was administered to primates infected with Schistosoma(More)
Mentally retarded children were asked to judge whether a series of visual stimuli matched a standard. With each judgment the investigator verbalized "right" or "wrong" and then provided full feedback of particulars, indicating with gesture and words the cue similarities and differences that supported each correct and each incorrect judgment.
