Effects of nucleic acid components and their relatives on the excitability of dopamine sensitive giant neurones, identified in subesophageal ganglia of the African giant snail (Achatina fulica
Abstract 1. Two dopamine (DA) sensitive giant neurones were identified in the subesophageal ganglia of Achatina fulica Ferussac: the PON (periodically oscillating neurone) excited by DA; and the TANExpand

Sex Hormone Metabolism in the Brain: Influence of Central Acting Drugs on 5α-Reduction in Rat Diencephalon
Rats after adrenalectomy-testectomy showed a gradual increase in diencephalon 3-oxo-5α-steroid:(acceptor)Δ4-oxidoreductase (5α-reductase) activity for 3 days. The activity then returned near to theExpand
