The rat brain in stereotaxic coordinates (2nd edn) by George Paxinos and Charles Watson, Academic Press, 1986. £40.00/$80.00 (264 pages) ISBN 012 547 6213
The second editon of Paxinos and Watson's rat stereotaxic atlas is, like the first, a detailed and definitive resource for stereotaxic surgery, brain dissection and neuroanatomical instruction. ItExpand
Ventral subicular interaction with the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus: Evidence for a relay in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis
The axonal projections of the ventral subiculum to the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BST) were examined in the rat with the anterograde neuronal tracer Phaseolus vulgaris‐ leucoagglutininExpand
Opioid-receptor mRNA expression in the rat CNS: anatomical and functional implications
The cloning of the opioid receptors has profoundly affected our understanding of opioid-receptor expression, regulation and function. This review focuses on the impact that cloning has had on ourExpand
Genetic relationship between five psychiatric disorders estimated from genome-wide SNPs
Most psychiatric disorders are moderately to highly heritable. The degree to which genetic variation is unique to individual disorders or shared across disorders is unclear. To examine shared geneticExpand
Molecular cloning, expression, and gene localization of a fourth melanocortin receptor.
The recent cloning of three melanocortin receptors suggests an unexpected diversity in this family of seven transmembrane G-protein linked receptors. Herein, we report the cloning, expression, andExpand
Pattern and time course of immediate early gene expression in rat brain following acute stress
The pattern and time course of brain activation in response to acute swim and restraint stress were examined in the rat by in situ hybridization using complementary RNA probes specific forExpand
Anatomy of an Endogenous Antagonist: Relationship between Agouti-Related Protein and Proopiomelanocortin in Brain
Agouti-related protein (AGRP) is a recently discovered orexigenic neuropeptide that inhibits the binding and action of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone derived from proopiomelanocortin (POMC) atExpand
Anatomy of CNS opioid receptors
Abstract There is a wide body of evidence to suggest the existence of at least three distinct opioid receptor types in the CNS, referred to as μ, δ, and κ. This paper reviews some of the findingsExpand
Altered cortical glutamatergic and GABAergic signal transmission with glial involvement in depression
Abnormalities in l-glutamic acid (glutamate) and GABA signal transmission have been postulated to play a role in depression, but little is known about the underlying molecular determinants and neuralExpand
Regulation of Serotonin1A, Glucocorticoid, and Mineralocorticoid Receptor in Rat and Human Hippocampus: Implications for the Neurobiology of Depression
BACKGROUND Disturbances of the limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and the serotonin system are commonly found in depressive illness. Studying the effect of stress on these two neurobiologicalExpand
