We examined the effects of monochromatic light on the time sense and the central nervous system. Nine young adult volunteers participated in this study. They were exposed to red-light and blue-light environments (illuminance was kept at 310 lx). We evaluated the time sense by time-production tests of 90 s and 180 s and measured the P300 event-related(More)
Three novel 17 alpha-ethynyl-Delta(6,7)-estra-3,17beta-diols and their 17 alpha-[(125)I]-iodovinyl derivatives, containing different C7-cyanoalkyl chains, were studied as potential radioligands for the estrogen receptor. The influence of the chain length on the biological behaviour of the compounds was assessed through in vitro ER binding assays of the(More)
In order to develop potential radiolabelled probes for imaging estrogen receptor (ER) positive tumours, we have synthesized and characterized a series of novel 7α-alkoxy-17α-(4'-iodophenylethynyl)estra-1,3,5(10)-triene-3,17β-diols and 7α-alkoxy-17α-(4'-fluorophenylethynyl)estra-1,3,5(10)-triene-3,17β-diols. The fluoro-substituted compounds showed a higher(More)
