Ample evidence implicates corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF)-producing neurons of the central amygdaloid nucleus (CeA) in vegetative, endocrine, and behavioral responses to stress and anxiety in laboratory rats. Monoaminergic systems are involved in modulating these responses. In the present paper, interrelations between CRF-immunoreactive (ir) neurons,(More)
Activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical system and EEG characteristics of the sleep-wake cycle were studied on adult male Wistar rats with acute inflammation produced by bacterial lipopolysaccharide in a dose of 250 μg/100 g body weight. Blood concentrations of adrenocorticotropic hormone and corticosterone increased by 6 and 10 times,(More)
The cholinergic and dopaminergic innervation of the amygdala plays an important role in attention, emotional arousal, aversive forms of associative learning, conditioned responses, and stress responsivity. Roman High- (RHA) and Low-Avoidance (RLA) rats are an ideal model to study the potential impact of this innervation on behavioral responses, because they(More)
The work presents comparative data on changes of neurophysiological, time characteristics of the wakefulness–sleep cycle (WSC) and morphofunctional state of neurosecretory cells in supraoptic nucleus of the hypothalamus, which develop under influence of a 6-h long sleep deprivation in adult and one-month old rats. It is shown that the rebound of sleep(More)
