(3) The use of functional test with the ACTH administration demonstrated organic affection of the CNS to sharply aggravate the weakening and even the exhaustion of the functional reserves of the glomerular and the reticular zones of the adrenal cortex developing during thyrotoxicosis, and also the reserve possibilities of the sympathico-adrenal system.
(4) Mendl's candy colours contrast sharply with the gothic garb of our hero's enemies and the greys of the prison uniforms – as well as scenes showing the hotel later, in the 1960s, its opulence lost beneath a drab communist refurb.

(7) Infection level increased sharply in the age-group 6-10 years old among people residing far from the rivers.
(8) This contrasts sharply with the reduction in both the frequency and surface area of sensory neuron active zones that accompanies long-term habituation, and suggests that modulation of active zone number and size may be an anatomical correlate that lies in the long-term domain.

(10) These findings contrast sharply with those of a similar study performed between 1969 and 1974.
