There is evidence that the inferotemporal visual cortex in the monkey projects to the amygdala, and evidence that damage to this region impairs the learning of associations between visual stimuli and reward or punishment. In recordings made in the amygdala to determine whether or not visual responses were found, and if so how they were affected by the(More)
Buspirone is an anxiolytic drug with a clinical potency similar to that of diazepam, but it lacks affinity for diazepam of y-aminobutyric acid (GABA) binding sites. Because previous reports suggested that buspirone may possess dopamine (DA) agonist activity, buspirone was tested for effects on DA neurotransmission. At presynaptic DA receptors, unlike other(More)
Meta-analysis based techniques are emerging as powerful, robust tools for developing models of connectivity in functional neuroimaging. Here, we apply meta-analytic connectivity modeling to the human caudate to 1) develop a model of functional connectivity, 2) determine if meta-analytic methods are sufficiently sensitive to detect behavioral domain(More)
To investigate whether the responses of neurones in the lateral hypothalamus and substantia innominata associated with the sight of food could control the responses of the hungry monkey to the food, the latency of activation of these neurones by food was measured. It was found that when an electromagnetically operated wide-aperture shutter opened to reveal(More)
The activity of neurones in the inferotemporal cortex of the alert rhesus monkey was recorded while the monkey was shown visual stimuli, which included both food and non-food objects for comparison with the activity of neurones in the lateral hypothalamus and substantia innominata. In the anteroventral part of the inferotemporal cortex, neurones were found(More)
Estrogen formation is catalyzed by the aromatase cytochrome P450 (P450AROM) enzyme. Aromatase activity has been detected in several regions in the rat brain. In the present study, we used peptide-generated polyclonal antibodies raised against a 20-amino acid synthetic fragment of the rat P450AROM protein (as deduced from the nucleic acid sequence of the rat(More)
Previous electrophysiological studies of the basal ganglia in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients have utilized linear analyses in time-or-frequency domains to characterize neuronal discharge patterns. However, these measures do not fully describe the non-linear features of discharge rates and oscillatory activities of basal ganglia neurons. In this original(More)
The effects of zoxazolamine (ZOX) and related centrally acting muscle relaxants on striatal dopamine (DA) metabolism and turnover, and substantia nigra zona compacta DA neuronal impulse flow were studied in rats. ZOX, chlorzoxazone and mephenesin, but not meprobamate, chloral hydrate, diazepam, pentobarbital, ethanol or dantrolene, decreased striatal DA(More)
