Previous pharmacological studies show that adenosine receptors in the corpus striatum may be involved in locomotor coordination. The purpose of this investigation was to determine whether the adenosine A1 receptor subtype would alter the locomotor response due to incapacitating doses of alcohol. In these experiments, an antisense oligodeoxynucleotide (ODN)(More)
Harman (1-methyl-beta-carboline) has been shown previously to act on the hippocampus of the rat in terms of its evocation of anxiogenic responses and induction of alcohol preference. In the present experiments, the localized perfusion of 200 microM harman in the dorsal hippocampus of freely moving rats increased the levels of serotonin (5-HT) but not(More)
Previous studies showed that the 5-HT2 receptor antagonist, amperozide, is somewhat more potent than the opiate antagonist, naltrexone, in reducing alcohol drinking in high alcohol-preferring (P) rats. The purpose of this study was to determine in the P rat whether the effect of either drug could be due, in part, to an alteration in gustatory function. In(More)
INTRODUCTION The current mainstream practice in otolaryngology departments relating to the use of prophylactic antibiotics in epistaxis patients requiring nasal packing is highly variable. This is due primarily to the lack of any validated guidelines. As such, we introduced a new treatment algorithm resulting in significant reduction of use in the systemic(More)
Drugs which possess selective actions on a given voltage operated calcium (Ca2+) channel (VOCC) are reportedly involved in the pharmacological actions of alcohol. Recently it was shown that the 1,4-dihydropyridine (-)-BAY k 8644, an L-type VOCC agonist, reduces alcohol intake relatively selectively in the genetic drinking AA rat. This study determined(More)
