Previous studies have associated stress with poor outcome in individuals affected by stroke. It was suggested that the effects of stress depend on the stressor's type and strength. Here we compare the effects of chronic predictable restraint stress and chronic unpredictable variable stress on motor recovery after focal lesion in the rat motor cortex. Adult(More)
AIM Stress and glucocorticoids can influence movement performance and pathologies of the motor system. The classic notion assumes that the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) mediates the majority of stress-induced behavioral changes. Nevertheless, recent findings have attributed a more prominent role to the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) in modulating behavior.(More)
Chronic stress has been shown to alter behaviour in both humans and rodents. For example, previous studies have shown that chronic stress can impair skilled motor function in animals. The stress response is defined by an increase in stress hormones, cortisol in humans and corticosterone (CORT) in rodents, both secreted by adrenal glands. CORT can cross the(More)
