Loftus and her colleagues demonstrated distorted reports of memory for an event in the direction of postevent misleading information. McCloskey and Zaragoza argued that these results do not necessarily imply a weakening of the memory for the original event. They obtained evidence supporting their position by using a modified recognition test. In this(More)
The glucoprivation effects of 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) on feeding behavior were studied in rats with bilateral lesions of the dorsomedial hypothalamic nucleus (DMN) and sham-operated controls. The lesioned and sham-operated rats were injected intraperitoneally with 2DG (5% wt/vol) at doses of either 150 mg/kg, 300 mg/kg, or 500 mg/kg, or with saline(More)
Lower body negative pressure (LBNP; -5 and -15 mmHg) was applied to 14 men (mean age 44 yr) to test the hypothesis that reductions in preload without effect on stroke volume or blood pressure increase selectively muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA), but not the ratio of low- to high-frequency harmonic component of spectral power (P(L)/P(H)), a(More)
The non-competitive NMDA polyamine site antagonist, eliprodil, was examined for its effects on exploratory activity in non-habituated mice and for its antiakinetic potential in reserpine-treated mice. A low dose of eliprodil (5 mg/kg) weakly stimulated locomotion in naive animals, whilst higher doses depressed rearing (20-40 mg/kg) and grooming (40 mg/kg),(More)
Angiotensin II participates in the neural regulation of the heart and circulation at both central and peripheral sites. To explore the role of endogenous angiotensin II in blood pressure regulation, we conducted a randomized double-blind crossover trial in nine young healthy men (aged 33+/-3 [mean+/-SE] years) studied in the absence of salt restriction,(More)
sponse data. This study reports such analyses conducted at several centers and correlates them with patient data, including responses to endocrine therapies. Because of the rarity of these data, we have attempted to present the raw data and to include in the text as complete an analysis of the data as possible. Patient samples were obtained and assayed(More)
SUMMARY Rodent and human mammary tumor systems were investigated to relate the steroid alcohol and estrogen sulfotransferase activities to the hormonal dependency of the tumor as determined by estrogen receptor content. Unlike the normal mammary gland or the hyperplastic alveolar nodule, rodent mammary neoplasms displayed significant levels of these two(More)
Male Sprague-Dawley rats received bilateral electrolytic lesions in the ventromedial hypothalamic nuclei (VMNL rats) at the age of 31 days; sham-lesioned rats served as controls. For 28 post-operative days all animals self-selected from three synthetic diets, each high in carbohydrate, fat and protein, respectively. Following this, half of the VMNL rats and(More)
