His-dTrp-Ala-Trp-dPhe,Lys-NH2(GHRP-6) is a synthetic compound that releases GH in a dose-response and specific manner in several species and that may well be related to an endogenous compound of similar structure. The aim of this study was to investigate the in vivo GH responses to GHRP-6 in pentobarbital anesthetized rats. Specifically and in order to(More)
INTRODUCTION Recent research has shown that body image stimuli increase negative affect and smoking urges among female smokers. Mindfulness (paying attention to present-moment experience with an attitude of nonjudgmental acceptance) may be a useful technique to minimize the influence of body dissatisfaction on negative affect, smoking urges, and smoking(More)
The early diagnosis of vertebrobasilar insufficiency in patients with vertigo as their only symptom was attempted using a battery of vestibulo-oculomotor tests. With this testing procedure, we were able to find abnormal vestibulo-oculomotor mechanisms that could account for the vertigo in 41 of 42 patients. These abnormalities, however, did not fall into an(More)
Previous studies carried out in normal male or ovariectomized female rats have shown that bombesin plays an inhibitory role on growth hormone (GH) secretion. Since estrogens play an important role in the neuroregulation of GH secretion, we have studied the effects of bombesin on basal GH secretion and GH responses to GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) in untreated(More)
The effects of angular accelerations in one or two spatial planes over the pressure exerted on the cupule of the semicircular canals, was studied using hydraulic models of the canals. The models were accelerated using a torsion pendulum and the resulting flow was monitored. The relative position of the model modifies the direction and magnitude of the flow(More)
