In order to examine the possible trophic, nontransmitter role of monoaminergic fibers in the adult CNS, synaptic structures were examined in different laminae of the somatosensory cortex of the rat following a p-chlorophenylalanine (PCPA)-induced decrease of monoamine. Synaptic densities were reduced in a dose-dependent fashion by 30-50% in the target area(More)
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)
A case of gastric carcinoma associated with dermatomyositis is reported. Total gastrectomy was performed and subsequently excision of hepatic metastasis. Although the cause-effect relationship between dermatomyositis and internal malignancy remains controversial, the obvious dependence of the clinical course of dermatomyositis on that of the gastric(More)
