Our study shows that 4-phenyl 1,5-benzodiazepin-2-one and its derivatives do not have catatonigenic (cataleptic
) effects on the central nervous system at therapeutic doses of 100 and 200 mg/kg.
AZE 100 and 300 mg/kg inhibited the cataleptic
effect of haloperidol (1 mg/kg) throughout the 60 min after haloperidol treatment.
Recently, new pharmacological agents, acting on the serotoninergic and/or noradrenergic systems, allow a better control of the cataleptic
attacks (6, 7).
Methought I was immersed in a cataleptic
trance of more than usual duration and profundity.
Between them, Lyons and Camp trace the move from the aesthetics of classical tragedy to those of the bourgeois drama, while Vila considers the theatricality inherent to the clinical observation and aesthetic representation of cataleptics
. Galvez and Hogg address the different modes of perception and attendant emotions induced by the crystal and the portrait.
In the present study, haloperidol induced a strong cataleptic
effect during at the four-hour period of the study.
Being vice president is comparable to "a man in a cataleptic

Proust "held himself suspended over life in a cataleptic
trance, [...] corroded by the very skepticism he had employed." (50) Accepting as we are of Proust's myopic "retreat from life," (51) it is significant to consider the nature of Miller's confrontation of it.
Recognizing that such moments of recognition are the result of both "discovery" and "creation," Nussbaum asserts in a discussion of Proust that the "blinding moment of cataleptic
knowledge, like any other break in the walls of habit, has the feeling of eternity, of the whole of life!
These are silleptic innovation shoots or cataleptic
innovation shoots, respectively (Rua, 1999; Vegetti, 2003).
Reports of Haitians buried in a cataleptic
states and later revived for enslavement--for example, the 1980 case of Clairvius Narcisse--have been credible enough to prompt several scientific investigations.
Having long expected his sister's demise, Usher is now apparently too grief-stricken to notice her apparently cataleptic
condition and has presumably been assured of his sister's death by the family physician, who had earlier shown what the narrator imagines to be "low cunning and perplexity" (320) on the day of his arrival.
