In general, mammalian taste neurons are broadly responsive to stimuli representing different taste qualities. In the hamster, this breadth of tuning increases systematically from peripheral to successively higher brain stem neurons. Some investigators have classified taste-responsive neurons into "best-stimulus" categories on the basis of which of the four(More)
The effects of lateral ventricular injections of succinyl-[Asp6, N-Me-Phe8]-substance P (SENK; 25, 100, 200 ng), a tachykinin NK3 receptor agonist, and [Sar9, Met(O2)11]-substance P (Sar Met; 100, 200 ng), an NK1 receptor agonist, on normal (gastric fistula closed) and sham drinking (gastric fistula open) of hypertonic NaCl by sodium-deficient rats were(More)
Young adults' perceptions of parenting behaviors were explored, specifically with regard to the issue of how perceptions may be affected by gender of parent, child, or observer. Ratings of psychologically (emotionally), physically, and sexually abusive behaviors and ratings of love/support, promotion of independence, and positive modeling/fairness were(More)
Single midbrain neurons were examined for effects of ovarian hormone administration on responsiveness to an array of lordosis-controlling types of somatosensory stimuli in anesthetized, ovariectomized Syrian hamsters. Neuronal responses were recorded under four different hormonal treatment conditions: 1) estradiol benzoate (EB) followed by progesterone (P),(More)
