The pyrazoloquinoline CGS 8216 (2-phenylpyrazolo-[4,3-c]-quinolin-3 (5H)-one, 0.05-2 mg/kg) and the beta-carboline ZK 93426 (ethyl-5-isopropyl-4-methyl-beta-carboline-3-carboxylate, 1-10 mg/kg) benzodiazepine receptor antagonists were evaluated for their capacity to modulate the behavioral actions of ethanol in alcohol preferring and -nonpreferring rats.(More)
The novel imidazothienodiazepine inverse agonist RO19-4603 has been reported to attenuate EtOH intake in home cage drinking tests for at least 24 h post-drug administration after systemic administration. In the present study, selectively bred alcohol-preferring (P) rats were trained under a concurrent (FR4-FR4) operant schedule to press one lever for EtOH(More)
In the present study, we examined two high-affinity and selective benzodiazepine (BDZ) receptor antagonists (ZK 93426, CGS 8216) in ethanol (EtOH)-preferring rats whose responding (i.e., lever pressing) was maintained by the presentation of EtOH. The in vivo actions of CGS 8216 (1-30 mg/kg) and ZK 93426 (5-75 mg/kg) were examined after intraperitoneal or(More)
Energy consumption of supermarket depends more on temperature than humidity. Multiple regression analysis is a flexible tool to consider for energy use prediction. Results show dramatic reduction in gas use and modest increase in electricity use. a b s t r a c t The change in climate has led to an interest in how this will affect the energy consumption in(More)

In the next years and decades, the number of old spousal dyads having to deal with the onset and progression of dementia in one partner will increase significantly. Existing research indicates that caregiving for an ill spouse is related to decreased caregiver well-being and high levels of caregiver stress. In this theoretical paper, we argue that three(More)
