The effects of the K+ channel blockers, apamin, tetraethylammonium and 4-aminopyridine, upon the relaxations of the isolated rat proximal duodenum induced by nitregic nerve activation, nitric oxide (NO), the NO donor 3-morpholinosydnonimine (SIN-1) and Br-cyclic GMP were determined. The effects of the guanylate cyclase inhibitors, cystamine and(More)
A new method is presented to determine the retinal spectral sensitivity function S(λ) using the electroretinogram (ERG). S(λ)s were assessed in three different species of myomorph rodents, Gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus), Wistar rats (Ratus norvegicus), and mice (Mus musculus). The method, called AC Constant Method, is based on a computerized automatic(More)
The diurnal Dipsadidae snakes Philodryas olfersii and P. patagoniensis are closely related in their phylogeny but inhabit different ecological niches. P. olfersii is arboreal, whereas P. patagoniensis is preferentially terrestrial. The goal of the present study was to compare the density and topography of neurons, photoreceptors, and cells in the ganglion(More)
