To investigate the interaction in speech perception of auditory information and lexical knowledge (in particular, knowledge of which phonetic sequences are words), acoustic continua varying in voice onset time were constructed so that for each acoustic continuum, one of the two possible phonetic categorizations made a word and the other did not. For(More)
In rats, angiotensin II appears to be synthesized in the anterior pituitary gland and stored in gonadotropes in the same granules as the beta-subunit of luteinizing hormone (LH). The gonadotropes also contain renin-like and angiotensin-converting enzyme-like immunoreactivity, but angiotensinogen-like immunoreactivity is found in a separate population of(More)
Utilizing an immunocytochemical technique wherein two different antigens can be visualized on the same tissue section, angiotensin-like immunoreactivity was found in rat adenohypophyseal cells that showed staining with antisera to hLH, hFSH or human prolactin. Angiotensin-like immunoreactivity was not found in cells that showed staining with antisera to(More)
To help resolve the controversy about the brain renin-angiotensin system, the distribution of immunoreactive angiotensin in the brains of male rats was analyzed using twelve different antibodies to angiotensin II, two of which had previously been reported to stain nerve fibers in the central nervous system. The distribution of angiotensin-converting enzyme(More)

Neuropeptides can affect cardiovascular function in various ways. They can serve as cotransmitters in the autonomic nervous system; for example, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is released with acetylcholine and neuropeptide Y with norepinephrine from postganglionic neurons. Substance P and, presumably, other peptides can can affect cardiovascular(More)
