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.

1. The circumventricular organs (CVO) are structures that permit polypeptide hypothalamic hormones to leave the brain without disrupting the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and permit substances that do not cross the BBB to trigger changes in brain function. 2. In mammals, CVO include only the median eminence and adjacent neurohypophysis, organum vasculosum(More)
Atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) is a group of peptides, originally isolated from the cardiac atria, that have a number of important effects on blood pressure, renal function, and salt balance. In the current study, expression of the ANF gene in certain extra-atrial tissues of the rat has been examined by radioimmunoassay of extracted ANF protein and by(More)
Angiotensin II (AII) is present in gonadotropes in rats, and there are AII receptors on lactotropes and corticotropes. AII may be a paracrine mediator that stimulates the secretion of prolactin and adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) at the level of the pituitary, but additional research is needed to define its exact role. Angiotensinogen may also reach the(More)
The nature of cells in the hypothalamus that produce hypothalamic hypophysiotropic hormones remains unsettled. To investigate this problem electron microscopic immunocytochemistry was performed on thin sections of the median eminence of proestrous rats using antibodies to synthetic luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) and the(More)
