Teaching is inherently a social interaction between teacher and student. Despite this knowledge, many educational tools, such as vocabulary training programs, still model the interaction in a tutoring scenario as unidirectional knowledge transfer rather than a social dialog. Therefore, ongoing research aims to develop virtual agents as more appropriate(More)
The probenecid technique was used in study of the central dopamine DA metabolism in patients with depressions, psychotic disorders, and Parkinson's disease. The disturbances found were neither nosologically nor syndromally specific, but appeared to be symptom-specific. Decreased DA turnover was associated with hypomotility, and increased DA turnover with(More)
In depressions, varying therapeutic effects have been obtained with 5-HT precursors. This is possibly due to the fact that the group of the depressions is pathogenetically heterogeneous; that, specifically, some types do and other types do not entail disturbances in the central 5-HT metabolism; and that only the former types are “precursor-sensitive”. This(More)
Probenecid inhibits the efflux of acid monoamine (MA) metabolites from the CNS. The probenecid-induced accumulation of these metabolites in the CSF in man supplies data on the central turnover of the corresponding amines. In this study an attempt was made to establish whether probenecid also exerts an influence on the metabolism of the MA precursors:(More)
