We tested the hypothesis that Locus Coeruleus (LC) inputs to the medial preoptic area (MPOA) and median eminence (ME) are essential for gonadotropin release. Proestrus and ovariectomized (OVX) rats were decapitated at 16:00 h. LC electrolytic lesion was performed at 11:00 h during proestrus and 24h before decapitation in OVX rats. Plasma luteinizing hormone(More)
The activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis is modulated by the norepinephrinergic system and, in females, also by the ovarian hormones. We investigated the role of ovarian steroids and the locus coeruleus (LC) on stress-induced corticosterone secretion in female rats. Ovariectomized rats without hormonal replacement (OVX) or treated with(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the impact of strength training on bone mineral density (BMD) in individuals harboring HIV exhibiting lipodystrophy. The study included 20 subjects (16 men) aged 50.60 ± 6.40 years with reduced BMD, presenting positive serology for HIV, using highly active antiretroviral therapy, and performing no regular practice of physical(More)
