The immediate posttrial injection of oxotremorine (0.125, 0.250 and 0.500 muMol/kg i.p.) and equimolecular doses of physostigmine can facilitate the retention of a passive avoidance response in mice. Injections given 10 min after training also significantly facilitate retention, but injections given 30 or 120 min after training do not affect retention.(More)
Naloxone (0.01-1.00 mg/kg, ip) facilitated retention of a one-trial inhibitory avoidance task, when administered to male Rockland mice immediately after training, as indicated by performance on a retention test 48 hr later. The dose-response curve was an inverted U in this range of dose. In these conditions naloxone did not lengthen latencies to(More)
In the REAL classification the diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) are grouped together, because subclassifications are considered to lack both reproducibility and clinical significance. Others, however, claim that patients with an immunoblastic NHL have a worse prognosis than patients with other types of diffuse large B-cell NHL. Therefore, we(More)
OBJECTIVES This study compares the effects of feeding growing rats with increasing concentrations of casein (C) and wheat gluten (G), proteins that show different biological qualities, on the morphometrical and biomechanical properties of the femoral diaphysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Female rats were fed with one of ten diets containing different(More)
The immediate post-trial injection of the centrally active muscarinic agonist oxotremorine (0.025, 0.050 and 0.100 mg/kg, IP) can facilitate the retention of a passive-avoidance response in mice, as indicated by performance on a retention test 24 h later. Injections given 10 min after training also significantly facilitated retention, but given 120 min(More)
These experiments investigated the effects of central noradrenaline (NA) depletion and its interaction with cholinergic and dopaminergic mechanisms upon retention of a passive-avoidance response in mice. The NA selective neurotoxin N-(2-chloroethyl)-N-ethyl-2-bromobenzylamine (DSP 4) (50 mg/kg IP, 7 days) was injected into mice to produce depletion of NA in(More)
the immediate posttrial injection of oxotremorine (0.250 mu Mol/kg, IP) can facilitate the retention of a passive-avoidance response in mice. After the administration of alfa-methyl-p-tyrosine methylester (alpha-MPT) by intracerebroventricular injection at doses that had no effect on retention (100 microgram, 10 microliter, 60 min before trial), the(More)
