A prefeeding peak of plasma corticosterone level in rats under a periodic feeding schedule is controlled by a food-entrainable circadian rhythm, an oscillatory mechanism of which is located outside of the suprachiasmatic nucleus. A stimulatory role of the catecholaminergic neurons innervating the paraventricular nucleus (PVN), where the corticotropin… (More)
