We were surprised to see that 7 of these students had more of this questioned amobarbital
metabolite in their urine than what we considered normal.
In 1949 Juhn Wada, a Japanese neurologist, used intracarotid amobarbital
or amytal, a barbiturate sedative, to arrest uncontrollable seizures.
Gottlieb was presented with the therapeutic challenge of treating a young man with psychogenic amnesia-the only such case he's ever seen-he obtained the patient's consent to perform an interview using amobarbital
Each Phase I patient will undergo a special epilepsy protocol magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, sphenoidal electrode placement, tapering to discontinuation of AEDs, neuropsychological testing, ictal/interictal SPECT scan and arteriogram with intracarotid sodium amobarbital
These results appeared to corroborate earlier data (Howard & McHose, 1974) showing injections of sodium amobarbital
precluded the development of odor-based DA patterning.

on odor-based responding in rats.

testing in presurgical evaluation of patients with intractable epilepsy.
Conditions under which amobarbital
sodium influences contrast in consummatory behavior.
During the acute phase of CD, parenteral amobarbital
or lorazepam may be helpful especially if a traumatic event was recently experienced.
