The Effect of 5-Hydroxytryptamine and Arterial Blood Withdrawal on Cerebral Microcirculation in the Cat, Arterial Permeability in the Rabbit
Studies dealing with the effect of 5-HT on cerebral cortical microcirculation of cats and on permeability of femoral arteries to RISA of rabbits are presented. The effect of 5-HT on cerebral cortical microcirculation was compared to that of arterial blood withdrawal and blood reinfusion. The effect of topical administratior of 5-HT was also studied. Cortical microcirculation was observed by transillumination using a microtransilluminator. Motion pictures were taken at a speed of 400 frames/sec. and a magnification of 3000X. Permeability was investigated using arterial RISA uptake in vessels perfused in vitro, with continuous recording of perfusion pressure.
