Alpha-Theta Brainwave Neuro-Feedback for Vietnam Veterans with Combat­ Related Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Th~ Minnesola Mulliphasic Pasonality Inventory (MMPl) was used 10 to assess persona/iry changes in post·traumatic slress disorder (PTSD) and prevention of relapse and application of alpha·,Ncla brainwave /raining is a more cfficaciou.
Alpha-theta brainwave training and beta-endorphin levels in alcoholics.
13-month follow-up data indicate sustained prevention of relapse in alcoholics that completed alpha-theta brainwave training, a relaxation therapy, appears to counteract the increase in circulating beta-endorphin levels seen in the control group of alcoholics.
Neurofeedback in the Treatment of Addictive Disorders
Publisher Summary This chapter explains neurofeedback in the treatment of addictive disorders. It has long been clear that alcoholism is associated with poor synchrony and deficient alpha EEG
Free-choice ethanol intake and ethanol metabolism in the hamster and rat
The data suggest a limiting role of ethanol metabolism in the regulation of maximized free-selection ethanol intake by rodents, and provide an explanation for the absence of continuously elevated blood ethanol levels and alcohol withdrawal syndrome in hamsters during periods of comparatively high daily ethanol intake.
Ethanol consumption of rats in individual, group, and colonial housing conditions
The data indicate that the stimuli of the colonial situation act to decrease ethanol intake when a palatable ethanol solution is available.
Reproductive toxicity of the psoralens.
The research has demonstrated that administration of the psoralens bergapten and xanthotoxin in the diet of female rats reduced birthrates, number of implantation sites, pups, corpora lutea, full and empty uterine weight, and circulating estrogen levels in a dose-dependent manner.
Effect of Force-Feeding Upon Basal Insulin Levels of Rats
Summary Rats were over- or under-fed to achieve a wide range of body weights. The effect of this treatment on basal insulin levels, with and without pretreatment with atropine, was examined. Basal
Neuropeptide Y: Behavioral effects in the golden hamster
It is demonstrated that NPY potently stimulates short-term food intake and decreases resting behavior in the golden hamster, and the lack of compensatory food intake in deprived hamsters cannot be explained as an insensitivity to the putative orexigenic function of endogenous neuropeptide Y.
Vasoactive intestinal peptide: Behavioral effects in the rat and hamster
VIP potently controls resting and ingestive behaviors, suggesting a role for this neuropeptide, along with CCK, in the feedback regulation of rodent behavior.
