Buspirone, a non-benzodiazepine anxiolytic agent, produced dose-dependent increases in the activity of norepinephrine-containing locus coeruleus neurons recorded from mouse brain slices in vitro. The response was not changed in a low calcium/high magnesium incubation medium, indicating that the observed effects were the result of a direct action of(More)
The characteristic behavioral effects of mescaline in cats were nearly completely blocked by pretreatment with low doses of either a specific serotonin antagonist (methysergide) or a dopamine specific antagonist (haloperidol). These blocking effects were not due to non-specific actions, since methysergide did not block the behavioral effects of apomorphine,(More)
Satellite SO2 and ash measurements of Mount Spurr’s three 1992 volcanic clouds are compared with ground-based observations to develop an understanding of the physical and chemical evolution of volcanic clouds. Each of the three eruptions with ratings of volcanic explosivity index three reached the lower stratosphere (14 km asl), but the clouds were mainly(More)
The rising of bread and the quality of the baked loaf depend upon the nature of the dough and especially upon such of its properties as tenacity, ductility, and elasticity. These properties are hard to define theoretically in this complex colloidal system, but they are, as we have found, related to viscosity or to whatever may determine the resistance of(More)
Rope is a condition of bacterial decomposition of bread which leads to a peculiar slimy or ropy consistency of portions of the interior of the loaf, produces an odor resembling that of ensilage, and renders the loaf unacceptable. During summer months the loss of bread through the development of rope may be very great, and individual bakeries may become so(More)
