Abstract:

The present project, MH-4785, constitutes an initial program in the science of developmental psychopharmacology. From its inception some six years ago, this program has emphasized application of new methods of environmental research and computer-controlled methods of motion study as the foundation of systematic research on brain biochemistry, development, and aging. A primary program with specific experimental objectives has included studies in three main areas a biochemical analysis of brain neurohormones in development b drug depletion of brain neurohormones in development and aging, using reserpine to deplete the brain catecholamines and c development of analytic sensory feedback systems in animals and in man for studies on drugs and development and aging. New techniques of computercontrolled delayed and displaced sensor-feedback analysis of motions in man have been developed under this project and work is being completed in constructing these systems for drug studies as well as for general investigations of motion in man.
