Effect of propranolol on task performance in human volunteers

, : Effect of propranolol on task performance in human volunteers. Indian Journal of Medical Research 77: 384-387

A double-blind randomized study on the effect of a single dose of 40 mg propranolol [an anxiolytic agent] on task performance in a non-competitive and competitive situation was undertaken in healthy human volunteers using simple objective techniques. The task performances consisted of the reaction time between a visual stimulus and response and the steadiness of the hand in performing a particular task. Propranolol in the dose used, significantly reduced the reaction time (P < 0.01) and produced a significant steadying effect (P < 0.05) in the competitive situation.

Objective: The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that obesity increases the sensitivity of rats to experimentally induced hypertension. Design and methods: To induce hypertension, unilaterally nephrectomized lean and obese Zucker...

We tested whether any intracellular signals are transmitted through 4-1BB/CD137 ligand (4-1BBL), using a 4-1BB-Fc fusion protein and 4-1BB-deficient mice. Immobilized 4-1BB-Fc fusion protein strongly inhibited osteoclastogenesis induced by macroph...
