The comparative study has been carried out on hypothalamic neurohormone (proline-rich polypeptides-PRP) and synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone (DEX) protective properties at the systemic (i/m) administration. Both background and evoked electrical activity (on n.ischiadicus stimulation) of single neurons in the lumbo-sacral part (laminae II–VI and(More)
A study of separate and combined actions of cobra venom (CV) and a new hypothalamic proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) isolated from magnocellular cells (NPV and NSO) on intoxication-and trauma, induced neuronal injury (during 3-4 weeks after hemisection with and without PRP treatment) was carried out. The registration of background and evoked impulse activity(More)
The action of PRP is characterized by the pronounced activation of the background activity (BA) of the brain spinal cord, and the degree of the activity depends on BA initial level. The typical peculiarity of Vipera raddei venom influence is the initial increase in frequency of BA with subsequent depression. A preliminary injection of PRP has a protective(More)
Effects of the glucocorticoid hormone dexamethasone on the reflex discharges in the lumbar ventral roots and background activity (BA) of single neurons in the dorsal laminae of spinal grey were studied in rats after transection of the sciatic nerve. Administration of the hormone during early post-traumatic period (up to seven days) evoked no significant(More)
Representation of the visual field was investigated in the feline posterior suprasylvian area (PSA) using electrophysiological mapping techniques. The PSA is one of the extrastriatal visual structures of the cerebral cortex. The PSA retinotopic organization pattern was also studied. Neuronal receptive fields (RF) were mainly located in the upper(More)
In neurons of the extrastriate area 21a of the cat cortex, we examined the mode of initiation and peculiarities of inhibitory components in responses of these units to visual stimulation. About 31% of the studied neurons generated complex responses to mobile visual stimuli; the parameters of inhibitory components in these responses (location and duration)(More)
The effects of glucocorticoid (dexamethasone) and mineralocorticoid (deoxycorticosterone) hormones on electrical excitability of nerve cells belonging to the dorsal and ventral horns of the spinal cord induced by stimulating the sciatic nerve, as well as background and evoked activity in single dorsal horn cells were investigated during experiments on(More)
The effect of the corticosteroid hormone hydrocortisone on electrical activity in the lumbosacral portion of the spinal cord was studied in acute experiments on cats anesthetized with urethane and chloralose and immobilized with succinylcholine. The amplitude of mono- and polysynaptic discharges arising in the ventral roots in response to stimulation of(More)
