Displacement of the endotracheal tube (ETT) caused by flexion and extension of the neck and the placement of a tongue depressor was investigated in 10 small children between the ages of 16 and 19 mo by means of a fiberoptic bronchoscope. The ETT tip moved a mean distance of 0.9 cm toward the carina with flexion and 1.7 cm toward the vocal cords with(More)
The effects of ketamine on the levels of dopamine (DA), norepinephrine (NE), 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) and their metabolites were examined in discrete brain regions in mice. A high dose of ketamine (150 mg/kg, i.p.) did not change DA metabolism in the frontal cortex, nucleus accumbens, striatum and hippocampus, but did decrease it in the(More)
We herein report a 26-year-old man with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) coexisting facial nerve palsy (FP) and deafness. He developed deafness, facial weakness, and limb weakness and numbness. Neurological examination showed facial diplegia, bilateral hypoacusia, areflexia and sensorimotor deficits in the distal limbs. The nerve conduction study findings(More)
The effects of repeated methamphetamine (4.0 mg/kg) plus scopolamine (0.5 mg/kg) treatment on behavioral sensitization and drug conditioning in rats were compared with the effects of repeated methamphetamine treatment. Behavioral sensitization induced by repeated methamphetamine plus scopolamine treatment was more vigorous than that induced by repeated(More)
The present experiment was designed to study the effects of an auditory stimulus with 300 Hz, 100 dB on gradual emergence of behavioral sensitization in the course of repeated administration of methamphetamine (MAP) in combination with scopolamine (SCOP) and MAP. Repeated intraperitoneal injection of MAP (4.0 mg/kg) plus SCOP (0.5 mg/kg) induced(More)
We investigated how repeated treatments with methamphetamine (4.0 mg kg-1, i.p.) plus scopolamine (0.5 mg kg-1, i.p.) and methamphetamine alone effected behavioural sensitization and conditioned response in rats. Repeated methamphetamine plus scopolamine treatment induced a more progressive and enduring enhancement of focused stereotyped behaviour than(More)
Exteroceptive suppression (ES) periods in human jaw-closing muscles can be conditioned by a wide range of somatosensory stimuli and cognitive states. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of subanaesthetic doses of midazolam, ketamine and propofol on the short latency (ES1) and long latency (ES2) reflex in the jaw-closing muscles. First, we tried(More)
This study compared repeated treatment with methamphetamine (4.0 mg/kg, i.p.) plus scopolamine (0.5 mg/kg, i.p.) and methamphetamine alone in behavioral sensitization and drug conditioning with respect to a reciprocal balance between the dopaminergic and cholinergic systems. Repeated methamphetamine plus scopolamine treatment induced a more progressive and(More)
