The effects of long term (30 days) lithium treatment of various doses on behavioral despair test and on serotonin metabolism in the hypothalamus, midbrain and striatum of rats were examined. Lithium at doses of 0.5, 2 and 5 mEq/kg significantly decreased the duration of immobility. In other words, lithium behaved as an antidepressant drug. Serotonin(More)
There have been several reports that convulsions, although rare, occur in patients who received fluoroquinolones. In this study, conducted for the evaluation of the convulsant action of fluoroquinolones, the effect of ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin on pentylenetetrazol-induced convulsions were investigated in mice. Mice were pretreated intraperitoneally (IP)(More)
The possible role of voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCCs) in the anxiolytic effect of ethanol was investigated using three different doses of ethanol (0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 g/kg) with calcium agonist Bay K 8644 (0.5 mg/kg) and calcium antagonist nifedipine (5 mg/kg) in rats. Ethanol produced an anxiolytic effect in a dose-dependent manner. The Bay K(More)
The effects of long term (10 days) treatment of lithium and naloxone on HVA levels of striatum, hypothalamus and frontal cortex in rats were investigated. Lithium (400 mg/l in drinking water) itself had no effect on HVA levels of any region. Naloxone (2 mg/kg) treatment caused significant increases in the levels of HVA in hypothalamus and striatum and(More)
Since it has been shown in previous study that aspartic acid prevents the development of physical dependence on and tolerance to morphine and antagonizes the abstinence syndrom signs, the biochemical bases of that prevention were investigated in the present study. The brain contents of serotonin, DA, NA, and free amino acids of the rats given aspartic acid(More)

There have been several reports that insomnia occurs in some patients who receive ofloxacin. Since almost no experimental data on ofloxacin-induced insomnia were available, this study was conducted for the evaluation of ofloxacin effects on sleep parameters in mice. In Experiment 1, mice were pretreated with ofloxacin (20 or 40 mg/kg IP) or saline 15(More)
The relationship between cerebrospinal fluid levels of HVA and 5-HIAA and the hypokinetic-rigid symptoms that occurred during oral administration of haloperidol in twenty schizophrenic patients was investigated. Measurement of the silent period in the EMG was used for evaluation of these symptoms. The results support the hypothesis of a positive correlation(More)
