Gravitational Study of the Central Nervous System
Offline Availability: Go to Request Form
Author and Affiliation:
Horowitz, J. M.(California Univ., Davis, CA, United States)
Abstract: A series of experiments conducted at 1G are discussed with reference to the role of calcium ions in information processing by the central nervous system. A technique is described which allows thin sections of a mammalian hippocampus to be isolated while maintaining neural activity. Two experiments carried out in hypergravic fields are also addressed; one investigating altered stimulation in the auditory system, the other determining temperature regulation responses in hypergravic fields.
