Maternal separation can interfere with growth and development of the brain and represents a significant risk factor for adult psychopathology. In rodents, prolonged separation from the mother affects the behavioral and endocrine responses to stress for the lifetime of the animal. Limbic structures such as the anterodorsal thalamic nuclei (ADTN) play an(More)
The limbic structures play an important role in the control of the neuroendocrine and sympathical adrenal function in basal and stress conditions. This work was undertaken to evaluate plasma ACTH, adrenocortical activity, cardiac adrenoceptors density and affinity response to variable chronic stress (VCS) in anterodorsal thalamic nuclei (ADTN) lesioned(More)
