Hyperactivity of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) axis is linked with age-related decrements in cognition and neuronal survival. However, the nature and extent of age-related HPA axis deficits vary considerably across and indeed, within strains. The current study was designed to assess variance in HPA axis function using two rodent models(More)
Aging in rodents and primates is accompanied by changes in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) activity. We examined behavioral and neuroendocrine responses in 3, 15-, and 30-month-old F344/Brown-Norway rats. Basal corticosterone and ACTH levels did not differ with age, although ACTH responses, but not corticosterone responses to restraint stress, were(More)
