A spoonful of sugar: feedback signals of energy stores and corticosterone regulate responses to chronic stress
To begin to understand the effects of chronic stress on food intake and energy stores, the effects of increased activity in the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and glucocorticoids (GCs) onExpand

Glucocorticoid negative feedback on the HPA axis in five inbred rat strains.
The aim of the present work was to study the influence of altering glucocorticoid negative feedback on both basal activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and its response to acuteExpand

Arginine vasopressin (AVP) depletion in neurons of the suprachiasmatic nuclei affects the AVP content of the paraventricular neurons and stimulates adrenocorticotrophic hormone release
Arginine vasopressin (AVP) produced in the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) plays a role in establishing neuroendocrine rhythms and, in particular, in regulating the corticotrope axisExpand

Glucocorticoids dose-dependently remodel energy stores and amplify incentive relativity effects
To test whether glucocorticoids amplify incentive motivation, three groups of rats were adrenalectomized and replaced subcutaneously with pellets of corticosterone (B), containing 0, 30, or 80% B andExpand

Diverse basal and stress-related phenotypes of Sprague Dawley rats from three vendors
Based on observed phenotypic differences in growth and ACTH responses to stress in Sprague Dawley rats obtained from different vendors, we ran head-to-head comparisons on rats obtained from threeExpand

Rapid modifications of somatostatin neuron activity in the periventricular nucleus after acute stress
Abstract. We have previously reported that stress induces a rapid increase in hypothalamic somatostatin (SS) release. In the present work, we investigated whether SS synthesis is also affected byExpand

Single, but not multiple pairings of sucrose and corticosterone enhance memory for sucrose drinking and amplify remote reward relativity effects
This study tested whether pre-training pairings of ingestion of a 32% sucrose solution and injection(s) of corticosterone (B) would enhance later ingestion in the absence of B, and whether theseExpand
