Evoked response pattern and recovery cycles in human subjects.

Nazif, Abdel. A. January 1963 (has links)
By definition evoked potentials are "the detectable electrical changes in the brain in response to deliberate stimulation of any part of the nervous system” (16). The importance of recording human brain responses to controlled sensory stimuli is well recognized. These responses represent, in fact, the end product of a long series of events in the nervous system from the peripheral receptor organs, through many interneurones and relay stations, up to the cortical neurons which participate in their production. Any change, physiological, chemical or pathological, occurring anywhere along their paths may be reflected in the recorded evoked responses. It is conceivable, therefore, that the study of these electrophysiological data can yield useful information about the functional state of the nervous system.

The diurnal variation of plasma cortisol levels in depression.

McClure, David J. January 1965 (has links)
The association of certain critical periods in life, such as puberty, pregnancy and the menopause, with changes in mental state provoked speculation from the earliest times as to the possible effects of 'humors' on the mind. [...]

The residual dimension: a study of residual syndromes in veterans with chronic psychiatric illness.

Jilek, Wolfgang G. January 1966 (has links)
A review of psychiatric classifications in use throughout the world (STENGEL, 1960) reveals that only four out of 38 diagnostic systems provide a classif1ing label for a condition as familiar to clinicians as the schizophrenic residual, or "defect", state.+ The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual ot the A.M.A. (1952) reserves the term Schizophrenic reaction, residual type, for "those patients who, after a definite psychotic, schizophrenic reaction, have improved sutficiently to be able to get along in the community, but who continue to show recognizable residual disturbance of thinking, affectivity, and/or behavior."

Biochemical pharmacology of harmaline in the rat.

Villeneuve, Andre. January 1966 (has links)
Harmala alkaloids have attracted the interest of many investigators on account of their effect on the extrapyramidal system, their hallucinogenic properties, their inhibitory activity on monoamine oxidase and the hypothetical role of related compounds in mental illness. [...]

Depletion of Pituitary Corticotropin by Various Stress Stimuli.

Rochefort, Guy J. January 1958 (has links)
Rapid progress has been made in the understanding of the pathways of homeostatic responses. It is now known that any disturbance in the steady state of the body's internal environment, be it abrupt or tedious, exogenous or endogenous to the organism, will evoke in it rapid and complex responses, mediated through its endocrine and nervous systems and tending to counteract the effects of the disturbing stimulus.

the Effects of Ions on Monoamine Oxidase Activity of Rat Liver.

Lagnado, John R. January 1955 (has links)
The first indications that amines are broken down in the body by deamination are to be found in a paper published by Schmiedeberg in 1877. Schmiedeberg demonstrated that in the dog, benzylamine given orally was excreted as hippuric acid, and he assumed that free benzoic acid was first formed prior to conjugation. A little later, Schmiedeberg and Minkowski were both able to isolate benzoic acid from minced rabbit liver incubated with benzylamine. [...]

Studies in body scheme: the effect of perceptual isolation on the experience of the body.

Azima, Hassan. January 1955 (has links)
The purpose of this thesis is to present the results of a study on partial perceptual isolation in mentally disturbed individuals which has yielded some new information about the problem of depersonalization and body-scheme. The nature of the methodology, and the material used, seems to warrant some clarification of the motives for this study. The impetus for the investigation came from three different lines of inquiry: (a) - The problem of disorganization of the individual in psychotherapy which, under certain conditions, may yield beneficial results.

The relationship of affect to the excretion of three hormones.

Curtis, George. C. January 1959 (has links)
Over the centuries physicians have noted the intimacy of the relationship between "mind" and "body". One of the many quotable statements on the subject was made in 1779 by Dr. William Buchan of Edinburgh, who wrote, "The passions have great influence both in the crate and cure of diseases. How winds act upon matter will, in all probability, ever remain a secret. lt is sufficient for us to know that there is established a reciprocal influence betwixt the mental and corporeal parts and that whatsoever disorders the one, likewise affects the ether." (7) There have been many fruitless debates over the question of whether mind or matter is primary.

the Antidiuretic, Pressor and Oxytocic Properties of Corticotropin-Releasing Factor (CRF).

Segal, Mark. January 1957 (has links)
Since adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisone have become of importance for therapeutic use, the factors which regulate the secretion of ACTH have been extensively studied (1). Three views have been put forward concerning this regulation; a) that ACTH secretion is controlled by the systemic blood level of adrenaline; b) that its secretion is controlled and regulated by the systemic blood level of adrenal cortical hormones and; c) it may be controlled by the hypothalamus via the hypophysial portal vessels (1).
