The effects of the GABAA receptor antagonists, pentylenetetrazol, bicuculline, and picrotoxin, the glycine antagonist, strychnine, and the NMDA receptor antagonist, memantine, on ethanol-induced behavioral sleep and body temperature were investigated. Pentylenetetrazol, bicuculline, and picrotoxin given prior and following ethanol reduced the behavioral(More)
In unaneasthetized and unrestrained cats, muscarine and carbachol were injected into the cerebral ventricles. The kind of aggressive behaviour depended on the cholinomimetic drug and was classified as fear and an irritable kind of aggression. Muscarine induced the fear kind of aggression. The aggressive behaviour was usually preceded by attempts to escape(More)
In unanesthetized cats, defecation produced by thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) was investigated after its injection into the cerebral ventricle (ICV) through chronically implanted cannulae. TRH injected in doses from 0.1 to 1.0 mg into the cerebral ventricle evoked defecation which was not dose-dependent. The antimuscarinic drug, atropine, the(More)
The emetic effect of clonidine injected into the cerebral ventricles through chronically implanted cannulae was investigated in unanaesthetized cats. Clonidine (0.1-300 micrograms) induced dose-dependent and shortlasting emesis. The emesis induced by the supramaximal dose of clonidine (100 micrograms) was not abolished after the ablation of area postrema.(More)
Intracerebroventricular injection of dopamine (0.5-4.0 mg) produced dose-dependent and short-lasting emesis (1-8 min) in cats, which was abolished after ablation of the area postrema. Relatively selective alpha 2-adrenoceptor antagonists (yohimbine and idazoxan) and a mixed alpha 1- and alpha 2-adrenoceptor antagonist (tolazoline), but not a non-selective(More)
This is the first survey of the practice of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in the Republic of Serbia. A retrospective chart review was undertaken including all patients having received ECT in Serbia in 2012. Only one center in Serbia offered ECT in 2012 to a total of 54 patients (54% women). Thirty-six (36) patients received acute ECT treatment and(More)
