Examination of the type series of Zygaena ferganae Sheljuzhko, 1941, which is deposited in the Zoological Museum of the Taras Shevchenko National University (Kiev, Ukraine), has revealed that there are some errors and misprints in the original description and following publication (Holik & Sheljuzhko, 1956: 143-144); these are now corrected.

We studied the effects of injections of xenogenic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on behavioral phenomena in rats under open field conditions. Parenteral introduction of xenogenic liquor in adult male and female rats resulted in appreciable changes in the indices of spontaneous motor activity in the open field. Single and double CSF injections promoted intensification of motor and orientational/research activity followed by inhibition of the respective behavioral manifestations. Repeated CSF injections were accompanied by a gradual decrease in the behavioral activity of rats. In males and females, these changes were nearly synchronous. Injections of CSF also influenced the seasonal dynamics of behavioral phenomena in rats and cyclic changes in the activity of females during the estrous cycle. In the whole, CSF injections exerted more powerful effects than the action of main natural biological regulators (photoperiod and sex cycle). The presence of significant amounts of biologically active substances in the liquor, which are responsible for complex effects on links of the neuroendocrine regulatory system of recipients, is the probable basis of the revealed effects. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.

We examined correlations of the characteristics of event-related potentials (ERPs) recorded according to a two-stimulus go/no-go paradigm (with measurements of the reaction time) with the contents of seven essential and potentially harmful elements in a group of teenagers (15 boys and 15 girls). Electrophysiological examinations and measurements of the contents of chemical elements in samples of a biologically stable tissue (hairs) using X-ray fluorescence analysis were carried out during three years (age of the subjects increased from 12 to 14 years). Nonparametric correlation analysis by Spearman was used. In 12- and 13-year-old teenagers, the element balance was characterized by deficiencies of Ca, Fe, and Mn; in 14-year-old subjects, an excess of Ni and a noticeably excessive content of Pb in hairs were found. Statistically significant correlations (0.37 < r < 0.64) of the amplitudes and latencies of ERPs with the contents of the above elements were observed (20 and 7 cases, respectively). Correlations of the ERP parameters with the contents of chemical elements were more clearly expressed in the case of deficiencies of essential elements in 12- and 13-year-old teenagers; in older subjects (14 years), manifestations of such correlations demonstrated a trend toward limitation. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
