Chronic psychoemotional stress of social defeats produces development of experimental anxious depression in male mice similar to this disorder in humans. 5-HT and 5-HIAA levels, TPH and MAO A activities, 5-HT1A-receptors in different brain areas were investigated at different stages of development of experimental disorder. It has been shown that initial(More)
The role of genetic and seasonal factors in stress-induced changes of pain sensitivity, evaluated by latency in hot plate test was studied. Significant interstrain differences in restriction effect on pain sensitivity was established. Analgesia, hyperalgesia or lack of influence on pain sensitivity in mice of different strains was observed in response to(More)
In mice with different experience of agonistic confrontations: victories or social defeats during 3 and 10 days (T3 and T10 winners and T3 and T10 losers, resp.), T10 winners displayed a lesser aggression and a more hostile behaviour than T3 winners. Naltrexone dose-dependently decreased attacks in the T3 winners and did not affect aggressive grooming,(More)
The authors studied the effect of naltrexone (0.25 and 1.0 mg/kg, intraperitoneal injection) on the communicative and aggressive behavior of male C57BL/6J mice with experience in triumphs in 20 tests (victors) and of mice without such experience (novices). The level of communicativeness and aggression at the first confrontation was more marked in novices(More)
Serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH) activity, and 5-HT1A receptor binding were studied in brain areas of male mice after repeated experience of victories (winners) and defeats (losers) in daily male confrontations. A decrease in the TPH activity in midbrain and its decrease in hypothalamus were shown(More)

Mice-losers in social conflicts had an increased number of haemorrhages and erosions in gastric mucosa as compared with the control and winners-mice. Administration of ciproheptadine and/or ketanserin enhanced the neurogenic gastric damage both in the winners and in control mice. The CBA strain mice were more sensitive to the damaging effects of the drugs(More)
The dynamics of the hypophyseal-suprarenal system reaction to catecholamines of different type of effect was studied in the Wistar rats during the first 16 days of life. The reaction to epinephrine was noted in 4 days old and to novodrin in 8 days old rats. Since the reaction to epinephrine acting on alpha- and beta-receptors appears ahead of that to(More)
The effects of central cyproheptadine and propranolol were virtually the same but differed in their intensity. Differences between genotypes were shown to be able to determine the differences in effects of the blocking agents on different kinds of stress-induced stomach damage. The data obtained suggest that genotypic properties of the serotoninergic system(More)
It has been shown that corticosteroid content of the blood in hibernating ground squirrels is the lowest. In spring, before the arousal, some increase in corticosteroid content is observed, although the latter remains lower than that in non-hibernating animals. During the arousal, corticosteroid content of the blood in the ground squirrels increased slowly(More)
