After making the greatest opposition between thought and extension, Descartes, like Plato, supposes them to be reunited for a time, not in their own nature but by a special divine act (compare Phaedrus), and he also supposes all the parts of the human body to meet in the pineal gland
, that alone affording a principle of unity in the material frame of man.
A good deal more than a year ago, before anything was known of Lydgate's skill, the judgments on it had naturally been divided, depending on a sense of likelihood, situated perhaps in the pit of the stomach or in the pineal gland
, and differing in its verdicts, but not the less valuable as a guide in the total deficit of evidence.
were analysed for 5-HT and 5-hydroxyl-indole3-acetic acid (5-H1AA) contents using HPLC with electrochemical detection.
ESS showed that individuals with retina-only mutations had more daytime sleepiness than those who had mutations in their pineal glands
(see Table 6).
Circularly Polarized MF(500[micro]T 50 Hz) does not acutely suppress melatonin secretion from Cultured Wistar Rats Pineal Glands
Researchers used computed tomography to examine the pineal glands
in 279 memory clinic outpatients (AD: 155; other dementia: 25; mild cognitive impairment: 33; depression: 66) and 37 age-matched controls.
11) Researchers conducted an experiment in which they removed the pineal glands
of rats to make them deficient in melatonin.
Its effectiveness may stem from the high incidence of dysregulated or calcified pineal glands
in geriatric patients, which leads to a marked reduction in melatonin secretion.
Exogenous melatonin may be chemically synthesised or produced from beef pineal glands
In our study, significant morphologic changes were observed in pineal glands
of rats with retinal damage.
Melatonin supplements are inexpensive, and easy to find in health food stores and pharmacies, but be sure the melatonin you buy is made in a laboratory and not extracted from the pineal glands
Immunohistochemical localization of gonadotropin and gonadal steroid receptors in human pineal glands
