A modification of the method of Hess and Udenfriend (1959) for the extraction and identification of tryptamine, as well as a gas chromatographic method for identifying tryptamine, has been described. Tryptamine, using these methods, as well as thin layer chromatography, has been identified in steer, dog and human brain. Tryptamine was not found in the rat(More)
BACKGROUND European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are common, widely distributed birds in North America that frequently come into contact with agricultural operations. However, starlings have been one of the neglected land-based wild bird species for influenza surveillance. OBJECTIVES To study the potential role of starlings in the ecology and epidemiology(More)
The effects of morphine (8 mg and 16 mg/70 kg) and pentobarbital (200 mg/70 kg) upon acquisition of a conditioned electrodermal response were studied. Both morphine (16 mg) and pentobarbital tended to reduce the degree of conditioning. In addition, morphine (16 mg) attenuated the increase in basal conductance relative to that which occurred under placebo(More)
Non-01 Vibrio cholerae gastroenteritis has been reported in the literature in association with foreign travel, or seafood ingestion, particularly raw shellfish harvested from warm-water climates. Non-01 V. cholerae gastroenteritis has not been reported before from New England. The case presented describes a previously healthy female who developed non-01 V.(More)
The brain and spinal cord of the chronic spinal dog contained higher levels of tryptamine than comparable regions of the intact dog. The most significant brain elevations were found in the cerebellum and mesencephalon. Further, tryptamine in the white matter of the spinal cord above the level of transection was higher than below. These findings have been(More)
