The effect of conditioning stimulation of the internal capsule on nociceptive neurones in the rat diencephalon was investigated. The animals were anaesthetised with N(2)O/O(2) (2:1) and 0.5% halothane, and immobilised with pancuronium bromide. Nociceptive neurones responding to noxious stimulation of the face and oral structures were recorded in the ventral(More)
The density and distribution pattern of aminergic nerve fibers in intracranial and extracranial veins were compared by means of catecholamine histofluorescence studies. Extracranial veins (internal jugular, inferior caval, portal, renal, internal iliac, and femoral veins) showed quite a uniform distribution pattern. Large veins (jugular, caval, renal, and(More)
A sensitive radioimmunoassay for plasma betamethasone 17-benzoate has been developed. The antiserum used was obtained by immunizing rabbits with betamethasone 17-benzoate-21-hemisuccinate-bovine-serum-albumin conjugate. All of the endogenous steroids tested cross reacted less than 0.10%. A standard curve was established with a useful range from 0.05-5 ng.(More)
