Paradoxical (REM) sleep deprivation causes a large and rapidly reversible decrease in long-term potentiation, synaptic transmission, glutamate receptor protein levels, and ERK/MAPK activation in the
STUDY OBJECTIVES It has been shown that wake (W) and slow wave sleep (SWS) modulate synaptic transmission in neocortical projections. However the impact of paradoxical sleep (PS) quantities onExpand

Catecholamine synthesizing enzyme activity in brainstem areas from victims of sudden infant death syndrome.
In order to investigate whether central catecholaminergic neurons are altered in sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), the activities of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) andExpand

Effects of an acute immobilization stress upon proopiomelanocortin (POMC) mRNA levels in the mediobasal hypothalamus: a quantitative in situ hybridization study.
The aim of this study was to examine by quantitative in situ hybridization the effects of an acute stress on the expression of the POMC gene in the mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH) of the rat. InExpand

Vasopressin mRNA in the cerebellum and circumventricular organs: a quantitative in situ hybridization study
To answer the question as to whether vasopressin is synthesized in brain structures other than the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei of the hypothalamus, vasopressin mRNA was detected by in situExpand

Effects of endophyte-infected fescue on concentrations of prolactin in blood sera and the anterior pituitary and concentrations of dopamine and dopamine metabolites in brains of steers.
An experiment was conducted to determine if the decrease in circulating concentrations of prolactin in cattle consuming endophyte (Acremonium coenophialum) -infected tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea)Expand

The supramammillary nucleus and the claustrum activate the cortex during REM sleep
Plasticity and cortical activation during REM sleep is shown by a subset of cortical and hippocampal neurons. Evidence in humans suggests that limbic cortices are more active during rapid eyeExpand

Comparison of the effects of chronic water deprivation and hypertonic saline ingestion on cerebral protein synthesis in rats
The effects of 3 days water deprivation and 3 days with 2% (w/v) NaCl in drinking water on local rates of methionine incorporation into brain proteins were compared by means of a quantitativeExpand

Neurokinin NK1- and NK3-immunoreactive neurons in serotonergic cell groups in the rat brain
Interactions are known to occur in the brain between serotonin (5-HT) and substance P (SP). To investigate whether SP can directly influence serotonergic neurons, double immunohistochemical labelingsExpand
