Insulin found in the CNS may be a key regulator in the balance of energy in the body. Since the peripheral circulation is the principal source of insulin in the CNS, insulin must cross the blood-brain barrier. We examined the retention of radioactively labeled insulin in the brain and its transport from the brain after injection icv in mice. The results(More)
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) restricts the entry of antiviral agents into the CNS thereby facilitating the creation of a reservoir of HIV that could potentially reinfect peripheral tissues. We characterized the efflux from brain of radioactively labeled viral coat HIV-1 gp120 (I-gp120) after intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection. The half-time(More)
The muscarinic receptor blocker, scopolamine, inhibits the display of lordosis behavior in female rats but its effectiveness depends on hormonal conditions. In these experiments, systemic administration of scopolamine (0.031-4 mg/kg) inhibited lordosis in ovariectomized rats brought into receptivity by treatment with a low dose of estradiol benzoate (EB,(More)
BACKGROUND Current concerns about vaccination resistance often cite the Internet as a source of vaccine controversy. Most academic studies of vaccine resistance online use quantitative methods to describe misinformation on vaccine-skeptical websites. Findings from these studies are useful for categorizing the generic features of these websites, but they do(More)
