The systemic injection of oxytocin (OXT) decreases the self-administration of heroin in heroin-tolerant rats. Since OXT-ergic binding sites are present in limbic and mesolimbic brain regions, the effects of intracerebral microinjections of OXT were investigated. In heroin-tolerant rats, the microinjection of OXT (2 ng) into the anterodorsal part of the(More)
An injection of vasopressin and its analog into ventral hippocampus facilitated the formation of avoidance response and inhibited the behavioural habit in the process of extinction. Opposite effects occurred after administration of oxytocin and its fragment. The changes observed in the avoidance paradigms motivated by fear seem to be related to effects of(More)
Intraventricular injection of oxytocin exerted a selective effect on catecholamine metabolism in microchondrial fractions of different brain formations of normal and narcotic drug-dependent animals. The drug-dependent group showed a higher level of the brain catecholamines as compared to the controls, oxytocin decreasing the catecholamine level in this(More)
The effect of 5-OT injection into the basolateral area of the amygdala complex on conditioned and unconditioned alimentary reflexes and on the concomitant amygdala electrical activity was studied in cats. 5-OT in 100 to 200 mcg doses inhibited the reproduction of conditioned reflexes only, not affecting the unconditioned ones. Under the influence of 5-OT,(More)
A single intracerebral injection of oxytocin activated the behavior, increased the frequency and amount of hippocampal theta-rhythm whereas vasopressin elicited opposite effects during "open field" test in drug-dependent rats with implanted electrodes in different brain structures.
The influence of intraperitoneal injection of vasopressin (LVP), oxytocin (OXY) and their fragments (DGAVP, PLG) on the acquisition and extinction of conditioned food reflex was studied in rats. It was found that vasopressin and its fragments had a more pronounced specific effect on the higher nervous activity of the animals. This effect consisted in(More)
The authors review potentialities of the use of the four-probe methods for measuring specific electric conductivity (SE) on biological objects. An analysis was made of the main causes of the method limitations and occurrence of errors during low-frequency measurements. As a result a design of a four-electrode conductometric set up is suggested with a(More)
