Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on pressor response and the influence of various drugs and serum of schizophrenic patients upon cortical epinephrine pressor response (CEPR). The influence of the cerebral cortex upon the cardiovascular system has been suggested by clinical observations of blood pressure, heart rate, and localized vasomotor disturbances in patients with verified cerebral cortical lesions. Experimental lesions in animals also yield evidence of vasomotor representation at… Expand

Receptor and cellular mechanisms of antipsychotic drugs
TLDR
Fos-immunostaining in combination with drug manipulation, brain lesions and in situ hybridization histochemistry were used to examine neurotransmitter systems involved in the effects of antipsychotic drugs and suggested that clozapine-induced c-fos expression in the ICjM, N A c and L S N is due to its antagonist actions at D3 receptors, while antagonistactions at D4 receptors may contribute to the Fos induction in the mPFC.

THE ALLEGED EFFECT OF SCHIZOPHRENIC SERUM ON RABBIT BRAIN CATECHOLAMINES
TLDR
In addition to the hypothalamic area, the remainder of the brain stem and the cerebral hemispheres were assayed and dopamine, an important component of brain catecholamines, was included in the estimations. Expand
The effect of normal and schizophrenic serum on the catecholamine levels in rabbit hypothalamus.
TLDR
The injection of normal as well as of schizophrenic serum was found to produce a decrease of the norepinephrine level in rabbit hypothalamus after 3 hours. Expand
The strychnine‐like action of curare and related compounds on the somatosensory evoked response of the rat cortex
TLDR
The observations are consistent with an action of curare and strychnine on an intracortical cholinergic inhibitory system, but other possibilities including a “non‐specific excitatory action” cannot be excluded. Expand
The non‐selective blocking action of γ‐aminobutyric acid on the sensory cerebral cortex of the rat
y-Aminobutyric acid can be easily extracted from various parts of the nervous system and since it has been shown to have inhibitory effects on the activity of neurones, interest has centred upon itsExpand
Behavioral changes of dogs following injection of neurotropic drugs into the arachnoid space overlying the cerebral cortex.
TLDR
This chapter discusses the behavioral changes of dogs following the injection of neurotropic drugs into the arachnoid space overlying the cerebral cortex, which evoked a behavioral depression resembling that of sleep. Expand
CENTRAL NICOTINE‐AND MUSCARINELIKE PROPERTIES OF CHOLINOMIMETIC DRUGS WITH REGARD TO THEIR LIPID SOLUBILITIES
The classical differentiation and definition of muscarineand nicotine-like effects of choline esters by Dale, “a ‘muscarine’ action paralysed by atropine and a ‘nicotine’ action paralysed by excessExpand
Substance P: A Polypeptide of Possible Physiological Significance, Especially Within the Nervous System
TLDR
There are some findings, which show changes of the SP content in brain under experimental conditions and a decrease in nerve after degeneration, which indicates that the physiological role of SP is connected with function rather than with structure. Expand
Neuropharmacological comparison of cystathionine, cysteine, homoserine and alpha-ketobutyric acid in cats.
TLDR
It was concluded that in the free form cystathionine, or its cleavage product cysteine, may be important in the normal functioning of the brain and play a role in the pathogenesis of certain inborn errors of metabolism independent of their importance as metabolic intermediaries. Expand

Recent developments have shown that the adrenal hormone epinephrine has the property of acting directly on neuronal aggregates of the central nervous ~ystem.l-~ Clinical observations have beenExpand
THE INHIBITION OF THE CONDITIONED RESPONSE AND THE COUNTERACTION OF SCHIZOPHRENIA BY MUSCARINIC STIMULATION OF THE BRAIN
TLDR
The pharmacological data in animals and clinical studies in patients show that the active alkaloids of Rauwolfia and, to a lesser extent, chlorpromazine, have a persistent acetylcholinelike effect, and the effect on the CR of various muscariniclike drugs that will pass the blood-brain barrier freely was investigated.

A CONCEPT FOR A ROLE OF SEROTONIN AND NOREPINEPHRINE AS CHEMICAL MEDIATORS IN THE BRAIN
TLDR
A concept that implicates serotinon and norepinephrine as chemical mediators of mutally antagonistic centers in the brain is offered, which endeavors to explain the actions of the tranquilizing agents reserpine and chlorpromazine and the hallucinogenic agents LSD and mescaline in terms of interactions with serotonin and norpinephrine in the central nervous system.

TLDR
The presence of noradrenaline and adrenaline in the brain has been demonstrated by von Euler and Holtz and the question whether these sympathomimetic amines, besides their role as transmitters at vasomotor endings, play a part in the function of the central nervous tissue itself is concerned.

VASOMOTOR CHANGES ASSOCIATED WITH PARALYSIS OF CEREBRAL ORIGIN
TLDR
The case is presented in order to facilitate the correlation of the physiology of the human nervous system with recent developments in the study of the cortical representation of this system in infra-human primates and to stimulate additional observations of vasomotor changes early in cases of paralysis of.

TLDR
It is concluded that epinephrine stimulates neuronal aggregates in the cerebral cortex through the local effect and the appearance of after-discharges of cortex and muscle after stimuli just sufficient to produce movement. Expand
Observations on Electrocorticographic Effects of Acetylcholine in Monkeys and Cats
TLDR
Topical application of acetylcholine usually produced a local depression that was often succeeded and sometimes masked by enhanced electrical reactivity and varied from a barely discernible increase to a sustained high voltage pattern lasting 30 minutes. Expand
