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)
The Rorschach and Million Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-II (MCMI-II) were used to examine personality styles and dynamics of 73 incarcerated Alaska Native and nonnative men. There were clear differences between native and nonnative inmates on both the MCMI-II and the Rorschach. Also, when the participants were separated into bicultural, assimilated, and(More)

Ratings of psychologically (emotionally), physically, and sexually abusive behaviors and ratings of love/support, promotion of independence, and positive modeling/fairness were(More)
