Studies of nonhuman primates suggested that the noradrenergic locus coeruleus (LC) may be involved as part of the neural substrate for a brain alarm function which includes attentiveness, arousal, anxiety, fear, terror, and the physiological correlates of these states. The studies compared the effects of electrical activation of tiny electrodes in the locus(More)
The therapeutic effect of acupuncture on epilepsies was evaluated in 4 experimental models. 24 acupuncture points were tried. In electroconvulsive threshold model, square wave electrical stimulus of 0.2 msec and 6 Hz was applied through a pair of cotton electrodes at the cornea of mice for 3 sec. The stimulus intensity to induce stun reaction of the mouse(More)
Repeated administration of high doses of methamphetamine (MAP) to rats can induce long-lasting neurotoxicity which may be related to permanent psychotic symptoms and negative symptoms in some MAP psychotic patients. In this study, we used the 2-[14C]deoxyglucose (2DG) method to analyze the effects of repeated MAP administration (12.5 mg/kg, i.p., 4 times(More)
The firing of hippocampal cells was studied in rats treated with desipramine 10 mg/kg per day i.p. for various periods of time. These cells were neurophysiologically identified to be noradrenergic postsynaptic by their decreased firing during stimulation of the locus coeruleus (LC). While desipramine given for 1 day produced no change, the drug given for 7,(More)
Clozapine has superior effects in treating negative symptoms of schizophrenia and causes less extrapyramidal side effects than traditional antipsychotics. In this study, we investigated the effects of acute and long-term clozapine administration on [14C]2-deoxyglucose uptake (2-DG uptake) in rats, as measured using the [14C]2-deoxy-D-glucose method. The(More)
This paper describes the coexisting attractors of Vconl parallel connected buck switching converters under a master-Vramp slave current sharing scheme. We present the basins of attrac-iLI tion of desired and undesired attractors, which provide design T information on the conditions for hot-swap operations. The vc C system employs a typical(More)
The noradrenergic nucleus locus coeruleus (LC) has been implicated in morphine withdrawal. The behavioral effects of opiate antagonist-precipitated morphine withdrawal in chair-restrained Macaca arctoides were therefore compared with LC electrical field stimulation. Both continuous LC stimulation and administration of low doses of naloxone to morphine(More)
