Activation of the corticotropin-releasing factor receptor from the basolateral or central amygdala modulates nociception in guinea pigs

Findings indicated that activation of CRF receptors in the BLA and in the CeA promoted antinociception, and this effect was reversed by preadministration of α-helical CRF9-41 in the same area.

Corticotropin-Releasing Factor Mediates Pain-Induced Anxiety through the ERK 1 / 2 Signaling Cascade in Locus Coeruleus Neurons

Pain-induced anxiety is mediated by corticotropin-releasing factor neurotransmission in the locus coeruleus through extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1/2 signaling cascade.

Corticotropin-Releasing Factor Mediates Pain-Induced Anxiety through the ERK1/2 Signaling Cascade in Locus Coeruleus Neurons

Pain-induced anxiety is mediated by corticotropin-releasing factor neurotransmission in the locus coeruleus through extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1/2 signaling cascade.

Severe stress switches CRF action in the nucleus accumbens from appetitive to aversive

Corticotropin-releasing factor, a neuropeptide released in response to acute stressors and other arousing environmental stimuli, acts in the nucleus accumbens of naive mice to increase dopamine release through coactivation of the receptors CRFR1 and CRFR2, offering a biological substrate for the switch in affect which is central to stress-induced depressive disorders.

Tonic Immobility Behavior : A Model to Fear , Anxiety or Depression ?

The study of the neural substrate involved in the modulation of TI and of the participation of the neurotransmitters systems associated with these central structures associated with this response is interested.

Increase of extracellular corticotropin-releasing factor-like immunoreactivity levels in the amygdala of awake rats during restraint stress and ethanol withdrawal as measured by microdialysis

A progressive increase of CRF-IR levels over time was observed, reaching peak values at 10–12 hr after the onset of withdrawal, and this hypothesis was explored in a series of experiments using intracranial microdialysis to monitorCRF-like immunoreactivity in the extracellular compartment of the rat amygdala.

CRF1 Receptor Activation Increases the Response of Neurons in the Basolateral Nucleus of the Amygdala to Afferent Stimulation

The results provide further justification for studying the efficacy of selective antagonists of the CRF1 receptor to reduce memory formation linked to emotional or traumatic events, and suggest that these compounds might be useful as prophylactic treatments for stress-related illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

Aversive and Appetitive Events Evoke the Release of Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone and Bombesin-Like Peptides at the Central Nucleus of the Amygdala

Results indicate that either food ingestion is interpreted as a “stressful” event by certain neural circuits involving the central amygdala or that the CRH- and BN-related peptidergic systems may serve a much broader role than previously envisioned.

Intra-amygdala injections of corticotropin releasing factor facilitate inhibitory avoidance learning and reduce exploratory behavior in rats

Results suggest that the amygdala is one of the anatomical loci involved in CRF modulation of memory processing and exploration in rats, and in mediating the influences of stress on behavior.
