Psychological stress and emetine cardiotoxicity

  • 13 Accesses

  • 5 Citations


L'autore riporta i risultati di alcune ricerche sulle interferenze fra cardiotossicità dell'emetina, condizionamento e conflitto nella cavia. Il conditionamento esercita un lieve e non significativo potenziamento sulla cardiotossicità emetinica, mentre tale potenziamento è risultato evidente ed altamente significativo con il conflitto. I risultati vengono discussi e l'associazione di metodiche farmacologica e psicologica, usata nelle presenti ricerche, viene proposta come base di lavoro sperimentale per lo studio delle interferenze fra stress emotivi e cardiopatie.
