ABSTRACT
The transparency of skin of fetal mice between 12½ and 13¾ days' gestation permits observation of microcirculation without dissection of overlying structures. The dynamics of fetal microcirculation were not altered, even after massive doses of norepinephrine to the mother mouse. Fetal arterial vessels of the telencephalon (middle cerebral artery), mesencephalon, body wall, tail and limb buds constricted following topical application of norepinephrine. Arterial vessels of the yolk sac did not respond to topical applications of norepineplirine.

    The threshold of cerebral blood flow (CBF) into infarction in rats has been indicated to be similar to that in patients. However, CBF does not reflect metabolic function, and so estimations of oxygen metabolism have been required. Here, we estimated changes in oxygen metabolism after occluding...

    Rationale: Understanding the neuropharmaco-logical mechanisms mediating attentional enhancement by nicotine would help a targeted search for nicotinic compounds with retained therapeutic but reduced unwanted side-effects. Previous studies suggested that the dopamine-releasing effects of nicotine...

    Noradrenergic transmission is implicated in the biochemical and behavioral effects of cocaine. Recently, we demonstrated that the alpha 1-adrenergic receptor antagonist prazosin attenuates cocaine-induced reinstatement of drug-seeking behavior. We now assessed whether prazosin could counter the...
