The present study shows that low amounts of applied iron have a potent effect on the ventrolateral striatum. This is reflected by an influence on spontaneous night activity, cognitive behaviour during the water maze navigation task, exploratory activity and in response to postsynaptic apomorphine stimulation. Such functional disturbances could be observed(More)
The action of m-trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine (TFMPP) and m-chlorophenylpiperazine (m-CPP), inhibiting the exploratory activity (ambulation and peeping) of the rat was studied in the open field test. The effects of both these drugs were antagonized by mesulergine, metergoline and mianserin, and partly by methysergide. Spiperone showed an antagonistic(More)
CNQX (6-cyano-7-nitroquinoxaline-2,3-dione) and NBQX (2,3-dihydroxy-6-nitro-7-sulfamoyl-benzo[f]quinoxaline), two competitive AMPA (non-NMDA glutamate) receptor antagonists, as well as their interaction with CGP 37849, a competitive NMDA receptor antagonist, were studied in rats and mice. CNQX and NBQX inhibited the locomotor activity of naive rats. No(More)
The effects of the atypical neuroleptic zotepine in comparison with clozapine, risperidone and haloperidol were examined in tests related to the central 5-HT2 activity. Zotepine, as well as clozapine and risperidone, were very potent inhibitors of the 5-HTP-induced head twitches (the behavior mediated by 5-HT2 receptors) in mice, with rank order of potency(More)
Fentanyl given in a low dose of 25 microgram/kg (ip) evoked a marked muscle rigidity measured directly by a mechanographic method in non-anesthetized rats. The selective 5HT1A receptor agonist 8-OH-DPAT (0.1, 0.3 and 1.0 mg/kg ip) showed only a tendency to attenuate the natural muscle tone. However, when that compound was given 40 min before (0.3 and 1.0(More)

There is a considerable consensus that over the multi-decade horizons encountered in pension investment, there are enormous gains which can be obtained through portfolios of corporate bonds and equities , instead of a focus on government bonds. However, such investment strategies do impose greater uncertainty upon the worker about post-retirement(More)
60 min of bilateral clamping of the carotid arteries (BCCA) in pentobarbital anaesthetized adult Wistar rats increases the lipid peroxidation in hippocampal tissue as estimated four weeks later. 1.5 micrograms FeCl3 in 2 microliters buffer injected unilaterally in the ventrolateral striatum enforced the effect when applicated one week after the BCCA(More)
