We previously demonstrated that high doses of methamphetamine (MA) exacerbate damage induced by severe brain trauma. The purpose of the present study was to examine if MA, at low dosage, affected abnormalities in locomotor activity and dopamine turnover in a mouse model of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Adult male CD1 mice were treated with MA (5 mg/kgi. Read More

Recent findings have shown that systemic morphine increases extracellular dopamine (DA), dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), homovanillic acid (HVA), ascorbic acid (AA) and uric acid concentrations in the striatum of freely moving rats. The morphine-induced increase in DA oxidative metabolism is highly correlated with that of xanthine. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of subcutaneous (s. Read More

We investigated the effects of the Ca(2+) antagonist nilvadipine on the dopaminergic system and motor activity in aged mice, in comparison with an other Ca(2+) antagonist, amlodipine. Furthermore, we examined the close correlation between the dopaminergic system and motor activity during the aging process. Striatal dopamine, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) and homovanillic acid (HVA) contents were measured in 2-, 4-, 8-, 18- and 36-week-old mice. Read More

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of microwaves modulated at different frequencies on human electroencephalographic (EEG) rhythms.
Materials And Methods: Thirteen healthy volunteers were exposed to microwaves (450 MHz) pulse-modulated at frequencies of 7, 14 and 21 Hz. The field power density at the scalp was 0. Read More
