Roles of Oxytocin Neurones in the Control of Stress, Energy Metabolism, and Social Behaviour
Oxytocin neurones are activated by stressful stimuli, food intake and social attachment. Activation of oxytocin neurones in response to stressful stimuli or food intake is mediated, at least in part,Expand

Oxytocin–Oxytocin Receptor Systems Facilitate Social Defeat Posture in Male Mice
Social stress has deteriorating effects on various psychiatric diseases. In animal models, exposure to socially dominant conspecifics (i.e., social defeat stress) evokes a species-specific defeatExpand

Involvement of Prolactin-Releasing Peptide in the Activation of Oxytocin Neurones in Response to Food Intake
Food intake activates neurones expressing prolactin‐releasing peptide (PrRP) in the medulla oblongata and oxytocin neurones in the hypothalamus. Both PrRP and oxytocin have been shown to have anExpand

Distribution and identity of neurons expressing the oxytocin receptor in the mouse spinal cord
Oxytocin can influence various spinal functions. However, little is known about the spinal neuronal networks responsible for oxytocin effects. The aim of this study was to localize and characterizeExpand

The Medial Amygdala-Medullary PrRP-Synthesizing Neuron Pathway Mediates Neuroendocrine Responses to Contextual Conditioned Fear in Male Rodents
Fear responses play evolutionarily beneficial roles, although excessive fear memory can induce inappropriate fear expression observed in posttraumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, and phobia. ToExpand

Dopaminergic cells in the superior cervical ganglion of the rat: Light and electron microscopic study using an antibody against dopamine
So-called small intensely fluorescent (SIF) cells were visualized immunohistochemically using a newly developed anti-dopamine (DA) serum in the rat superior cervical ganglia (SCG), both light andExpand

Activation of hypothalamic oxytocin neurons following tactile stimuli in rats
Gentle touching or stroking has anxiolytic actions and contributes to the establishment of an intimate relationship between individuals. Oxytocin administration also has anxiolytic actions andExpand

Existence of noradrenalin cells and serotonin cells in the pituitary gland of Rana catesbeiana
SummaryThe localization of catecholamine-synthesizing enzymes [tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), dopamine-β-hydroxylase (DBH), and phenylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase (PNMT)], of serotonin (5-HT), andExpand
