We have recently isolated three opioid peptides, i.e., Met- and Leu-enkephalins and Met-enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7, from the avian brain. Furthermore, electrophysiological studies have shown that the dominant effect of these enkephalins on preoptic and hypothalamic neurons is an inhibition of neuronal activities in the male Japanese quail. The hypothalamus and(More)
Neuropeptides are supposed to be implicated in the regulation of hormone as well as nonhormone dependent behavioral processes in birds. Previous immunohistochemical studies have suggested that in birds opioid pentapeptides, Met- and Leu-enkephalins, may be present in the brain including the regions that regulate sex hormone dependent behaviors, such as(More)
We have recently isolated three opioid peptides, i.e., Met- and Leu-enkephalins and Met-enkephalin-Arg6-Phe7, from the avian brain. In the present study, therefore, effects of these endogenous opioid peptides on the electrical activity of preoptic and hypothalamic neurons of the adult male Japanese quail were examined using a brain slice preparation. All of(More)
Regarding human-machine-interfaces, switches have not changed significantly despite the machines themselves evolving constantly. In this paper, we propose a new method of operability for devices by providing multiple switches dynamically, and users choose the switch that has the functionality that they want to use. Switch++ senses the mental model of the(More)
