ACTIONS OF PROSTAGLANDINS Ei, E2 AND E3 ON THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM

TLDR
Prostaglandins E1, E2 and E3, injected into the cerebral ventricles of unanaesthetized cats, produced sedation, stupor and signs of catatonia and, with the higher doses, loss of the righting reflex.

Low-dose kaolin-induced feline hydrocephalus and feline ventriculostomy: an updated model.

TLDR
A series of modifications to a commonly used protocol is described, intended to ameliorate animal welfare concerns without compromising the degree of ventricular enlargement.

THE BRITISH PHARMACOLOGICAL SOCIETY Evidence for a dopaminergic mechanism for modulation of adrenergic transmission in the rabbit artery

TLDR
Deter-mining the cardiovascular response to intravenously injected noradrenaline, isoprenalin, ,carbachol and to vagal stimulation in urethane anaesthetized rats after acute or chronic pretreatment with one of the above antidepressants is deter-mining.

“Recovery” function of sleep: Effects of purified human interleukin-1 on the sleep and febrile response of cats

TLDR
The results show that Il-1 at a dose of 20 nmol has sleep-promoting effects on NREM and REM sleep concomitant with pyrogenic effects, and these two responses differed in their time courses and were not correlated.

The area postrema and the hypertensive effect of angiotensin

The intracerebroventricular administration of angiotensin II in pentobarbital-anesthetized cats produced dose-dependent increases in the arterial blood pressure without significant changes in the

Ablation of the area postrema and emesis

TLDR
The results obtained show that the area postrema is almost always involved in the central regulation of emesis and that it represents, in most cats, a common site of confluence of different inputs subserving the emesis.

Permanent ventriculostomy in cats

SummaryA commercial ventriculostomy reservoir has been modified for use in cats. It allows repeated ventricular punctures in chronic experiments.

6-Hydroxydopamine inhibits some effects of mescaline centrally administered to rabbits

The narcotic antagonist naloxone does not antagnonize antinociception elicited in the rabbit by 100 μg/kg of mescaline centrally administered, whereas pretreatment with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)
