Sensitivity of the rat gustatory system to the rate of stimulus onset
Responses of the rat chorda tympani nerve were obtained to stimulation of the tongue with both linearly rising anodal current of varying intensity and rate of rise and NaCl presented at differentExpand

Status epilepticus induces cardiac myofilament damage and increased susceptibility to arrhythmias in rats.
Status epilepticus (SE) is a seizure or series of seizures that persist for >30 min and often results in mortality. Death rarely occurs during or immediately following seizure activity, but usuallyExpand

Suppression of fever after lesions of the anteroventral third ventricle in guinea pigs
Endogenous pyrogen (EP), injected systemically or intracerebrally, evokes fever and certain changes in plasma trace metal and glycoprotein levels which are characteristic of the acute-phase reaction.Expand

Oxytocin receptor binding in the hypothalamus during gestation in rats.
Central oxytocin receptors (OTR) may be involved in adaptations of the brain oxytocin (OT) system during gestation, which are critical for systemic release of OT during parturition and lactation. WeExpand

Autonomic and cellular mechanisms mediating detrimental cardiac effects of status epilepticus
Prolonged seizure activity (status epilepticus; SE) can result in increased susceptibility to lethal ventricular arrhythmias for an extended period of time following seizure termination. SE isExpand

Phasic Vascular Sodium Pump Changes in Deoxycorticosterone‐Hypertensive Rats
We determined the sodium pump activity, measured as ouabain-sensitive 86Rb+ uptake, in the tail arteries of rats treated with deoxycorticosterone and sodium chloride for 6, 9, 14, 28, and 50 days.Expand

Noradrenergic control of central oxytocin release during lactation in rats.
Noradrenergic systems regulate the systemic release of oxytocin (OT) in lactating rats. However, a role for norepinephrine (NE) in release of OT within the magnocellular nuclei during suckling hasExpand

Paraventricular nucleus histamine increases blood pressure by adrenoreceptor stimulation of vasopressin release.
The role of adrenoreceptor stimulation and the peripheral mechanism mediating the increase in mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) during administration of histamine (HA) in theExpand

Histaminergic Control of Oxytocin Release in the Paraventricular Nucleus during Lactation in Rats
The central neurotransmitters regulating both systemic and central release of oxytocin (OT) during lactation are not completely defined. Although central histaminergic systems have been implicated inExpand

Central depressor action of nitric oxide is deficient in genetic hypertension.
Inhibition of NO synthase (NOS) in the central nervous system (CNS) causes a pressor response. This observation indicates that NO is normally produced at CNS site(s) where it has a tonic bloodExpand
