Rabbit lungs were perfused via the pulmonary artery and norepinephrine (NE) measured in the outflows. The basal NE level was approximately 3 ng/min. Electrical stimulation (50 V, 1 ms, 10 Hz) of the sympathetic nerves doubled the NE release. Hexamethonium (10(-4) and 10(-5) M) had no effect on the release of NE. Administration of a monoamine oxidase (MAO)(More)
Developmental features of the P2 auditory ERP in a change detection paradigm were examined in infants prenatally exposed to methadone.
