The comparison of intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS) derived across the anteroposterior axis of medial forebrain bundle (MFB) from the anterior border of lateral hypothalamus (LH) to the ventral mesencephalon including ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra (VTA-SN) in Wistar rats was assessed through stimulation parameters and behavioural response(More)
This study aimed at investigating the effects of modulators of acetylcholine-muscarinic (ACh-M) and GABAA.B-receptors in the lateral hypothalamus and ventral tegmentum on the electrical self-stimulation evoked from these regions. In each Wistar rat, a bipolar electrode and an ipsilateral insulated cannula-cum-electrode were implanted chronically in the(More)
Resolution of inflammation is an emerging new strategy to reduce damage following ischemic stroke. Lipoxin A4 (LXA4 ) is an anti-inflammatory, pro-resolution lipid mediator with high affinity binding to ALX, the lipoxin A4 receptor. Since LXA4 is rapidly inactivated, potent analogs have been created, including the ALX agonist BML-111. We hypothesized that(More)
Changes in intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS) evoked from ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra (VTA-SN) and lateral hypothalamus-medial forebrain bundle (LH-MFB) before and after microinjections of sulfated cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8S) and unsulfated cholecystokinin (CCK-8US), neurotensin tridecapeptide ([D-Tyr11]NT(1-13) or [DTrp11]NT(1-13))(More)
The involvement of different sub-types of dopamine receptors in the electrical self-stimulation behaviour was investigated using DA receptor subtype specific agonists viz R(+) SKF 38393 and LY 171555 (quinipirole). Rats were chronically implanted with bipolar electrodes in lateral hypothalamus-medial forebrain bundles (LH-MFB) and ventral tegmental(More)
Intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS) evoked from the ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra (VTA-SN) and lateral hypothalamus-medial forebrain bundle (LH-MFB) was assessed following microinjections of mu (Tyr-D-Ala2-N-Me-Phe4-Gly5ol: DAGO), delta-(D-Ala2, D-Met5)-enkephalin: DADME) or kappa (Dynorphin-B or Rimorphin) opioid receptor subtype agonists or(More)
Leu-enkephalin, leu-enkephalinamide, ala-leu-enkephalin, met-enkephalin and dynorphin-A[1-13] were administered in microinjection into one of the self-stimulation sites of SN-VTA or MFB-LH and the electrical self-stimulation (SS) of the injected site and of the second site was recorded. The study revealed that the leu-enkephalin and the leu-enkephalinamide(More)
The experimental animals were implanted with two bipolar electodes, one in the lateral hypothalamus including medial forebrain bundle (LH-MFB) and other in ipsilateral ventral tegmental area-substantia nigra (VTA-SN) and were trained to press a pedal for self-stimulation. This provided the scope to compare directly the effect of a given dose of a drug on(More)
The temporal pattern of hypothalamic and limbic aminergic activity during the estrous cycle has been measured by changes in the serotonergic and noradrenergic neuronal uptake during the regular estrous cycle. Significant changes (p = 0.006, 0.01) in the uptake of 3H 5-HT and 3H NE were recorded in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) at 1200 hours on proestrus.(More)
