ultrastructure of the pineal cells of the homing pigeon columba livia and magnetic fields (first trials).the homing pigeon columba livia was exposed to uniform 60 hz ac magnetic fields, generated by helmholtz coils with an intensity of 200 mg for 48 hrs. the microscopic studies performed revealed that only some of the pineal cells (between 20 and 30%) seemed to respond to the magnetic stimulation, and showed different ultrastructural morphological changes; the most striking effect was an apparent increase of apocrine secretion to the luminal spaces in the epiphyseal epithelium of this avian species ...19854067285
the influence of central infusions on drinking due to peripheral osmotic stimuli in the pigeon (columba livia).the drinking responses of pigeons infused simultaneously iv (0.334 ml/min) and icv (2 microliters/min) for 15 min with various osmotic solutions were observed during, and for 60 min after, the combined infusions. drinking in response to iv infusion of 0.5 m nacl or 1.0 m sucrose was unaffected by simultaneous icv infusion of 0.15 m nacl, enhanced by icv 0.3 m nacl, inhibited during the infusion of water icv and attenuated by icv infusion of 0.9 m sucrose. drinking in response to iv infusion of 1 ...19863960995
[relationship between nystagmus and utricular function].the horizontal neck nystagmus arising in response to angular acceleration was recorded electromyographically in pigeons (columba livia). after bilateral section of the utricular nerves (roumuli utriculi) the nystagmic reactions to the right and to the left remained symmetrical although they were delayed when compared to the reactions of intact animals. unilateral section of the utricular nerves caused asymmetric reactions from the semicircular canals: the nystagmus toward the dissected nerve was ...19854068649

telencephalic connections of the trigeminal system in the pigeon (columba livia): a trigeminal sensorimotor circuit.a combination of autoradiography and horseradish peroxidase histochemistry was used to identify telencephalic structures linking the sensory and motor components of the trigeminal system in the pigeon. a direct telencephalic projection from the principal trigeminal sensory nucleus upon the nucleus basalis via the quintofrontal tract was confirmed. nucleus basalis projects upon a belt of neurons within the overlying neostriatum. this region (neostriatum frontale, pars trigeminale: nft) gives rise ...19853988994
effect of oestradiol dipropionate on the immune system of the pigeon, columba livia.influence of female sex hormone, oestradiol dipropionate on the humoral and cell-mediated immune (cmi) responses of pigeon, columba livia of different age groups and of both sexes were studied. the pigeons were administered with the hormone, immunized with sheep red blood cells (srbc) and rosette forming cell (rfc), haemagglutinin (ha) and migration inhibition (mi) assays carried out on different days post-immunization. the hormone showed a differential effect: while the rfc and ha were enhanced ...19854085675

osmoreceptor localization in the brain of the pigeon (columba livia).the area of the brain of pigeons that may be responsible for drinking following intravascular administration of osmotically effective solutes was investigated using infusions of water or isotonic and hypertonic solutions of nacl or sucrose into various regions of the brains of conscious birds, and measuring the volume of water drunk. the preoptic area and the lateral hypothalamus were the only areas from which dose related drinking could be obtained in response to bilateral infusions of hyperton ...19863730859
variations in ascorbic acid concentrations in the liver, gonads, kidney, and blood serum of feral blue rock pigeon (columba livia gmelin) during the breeding and nonbreeding seasons.to elucidate the possible involvement of ascorbic acid in gonadal steroidogenesis and role of gonadal steroids on the vitamin's turnover, ascorbic acid levels were quantified in the liver, gonads, kidney, and blood serum in both sexes of the indian feral blue rock pigeon (columba livia gmelin) during the breeding (march to april) and nonbreeding (june to july) seasons. low concentrations were observed during the breeding season and significantly higher cencentrations during the nonbreeding seaso ...19853991426

studies on phosphagen synthesis by mitochondrial preparations.mitochondrial preparations from muscles of a crab (cancer pagurus), two fish (trachurus trachurus and scyliorhinus canicula) and a bird (columba livia) are able to synthesise, through atp, the phosphagen related to that species. this indicates the presence of a bound phosphagen kinase. addition of creatine kinase and creatine to crab mitochondria results in the synthesis of phosphocreatine. similarly, the addition of arginine kinase and arginine to mitochondrial preparations from the fish and bi ...19854006444
grasping in the pigeon (columba livia): final common path mechanisms.a combination of cinematographic and denervation procedures were used to analyse the mechanisms involved in the adjustment of gape size during grasping in the pigeon. gape size was found to vary directly with seed size and to reflect the operation of two variables, jaw opening velocity and jaw opening duration. effects upon duration are mediated, indirectly, by the effect of seed size upon head height, which, in turn, controls the velocity of head descent. the data suggest that the control of ga ...19854091959

the influence of intracerebroventricular infusions on osmotically induced urine excretion in the pigeon (columba livia).this study deals with the influence of intracerebroventricular (icv) infusions on urine volume and electrolyte excretion in response to a peripherally administered osmotic load in conscious behaving pigeons. the icv infusions were intended to influence the cerebrospinal fluid (csf) sodium (na+) concentration that would have been increased by the hypertonic nacl or sucrose solutions infused intravenously (iv). urine and electrolyte excretion following iv infusion of 0.5 m nacl were enhanced by si ...19863774899
electrocardiogram of the racing pigeon (columba livia domestica).using standard limb leads electrocardiograms (ecgs) were recorded in 60 pigeons. the greatest amplitude of the p wave was observed in lead ii in the majority of ecgs. the predominant pattern of the p wave was positive in leads i and ii, biphasic (-/+) in lead iii, negative in avr, biphasic (+/-) in avl and positive in avf. a ta wave was observed in 50 out of 60 tracings. wenckebach's phenomenon was observed in three different pigeons. in lead i the qrs pattern was rs or qs. in leads ii, iii and ...19854012029

topographic representation of visceral target organs within the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve of the pigeon columba livia.our previous work (katz and karten, '83a j. comp. neurol. 217:31-46 demonstrated that the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve (dmn complex) in the pigeon is composed of cytoarchitecturally distinct subnuclei that are distinguished by the size, shape, position, and cytochemical characteristics of their constituent neurons. in view of the diversity of target organs innervated by the vagus nerve, we sought to determine whether the subnuclear heterogeneity of the dmn complex is related to the pa ...19854086668
[hexamitiasis in carrier pigeons in the netherlands].hexamitiasis in carrier pigeons caused by hexamita columbae was reported for the first time in the netherlands. infections tend to occur from april to july in 6-8 week old birds. the patients were affected with diarrhoea, became emaciated and died. mortality may be considerable. parasites may be identified in unstained wet specimens of very fresh droppings. treatment consists in administration of ronidazole during a period from seven to ten days. optimum hygiene should be observed.19854089854
