The lateral septum (LS) is a limbic brain region that receives serotonergic projections from raphe neurons and participates in the modulation of stress responses and affective states. The present study determined whether mineralocorticoid receptors (MRs) and/or glucocorticoid receptors (GRs) located in the LS interact with the serotonergic system in the regulation of depressive-like behavior of rats subjected to the forced swimming test (FST). We also studied the effect of corticosterone… Expand
The antidepressant-like effect of ethynyl estradiol is mediated by both serotonergic and noradrenergic systems in the forced swimming test
TLDR
The results suggest that the antidepressant-like action of EE2 implies a complex mechanism of action on monoaminergic systems and estrogen receptors. Expand
Differential effects of imipramine and CORT118335 (Glucocorticoid receptor modulator/mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist) on brain-endocrine stress responses and depression-like behavior in female rats
TLDR
Data suggest the antidepressant-like (e.g., active coping) properties of imipramine may be due to widespread effects on cortico-limbic circuits that regulate emotional and cognitive processes. Expand
Acute corticosterone treatment elicits antidepressant-like actions on the hippocampal 5-HT and the immobility phenotype
TLDR
It is suggested that hippocampal 5-HT responses may be one of the neurochemical bases for the immobility phenotype following CORT injection, and CORT was found to dose-dependently increase the dialysate 5- HT and decrease theimmobility time when compared to their vehicle-treated controls. Expand
Neurochemical and behavioral profile of corticosterone : a dose related study
During stressful events, glucocorticoids are secreted peripherally and act on central monoaminergic systems particularly modulating serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) functions, social behavior,Expand
The glucocorticoid receptor in the limbic system of the human brain
Glucocorticoid hormones (GCs) are important mediators of the stress response in mammals including humans. GCs are released from the adrenal in response to stress and affect numerous processes in theExpand
A double-hit model of stress dysregulation in rats: implications for limbic corticosteroid receptors and anxious behavior under amitriptyline treatment
TLDR
The differential effects among groups could mean that MS would promote an alternative phenotype that is expressed when facing CVS (a double hit) later in life. Expand
Antidepressant activity of astilbin: involvement of monoaminergic neurotransmitters and BDNF signal pathway.
TLDR
The findings suggest that AST has antidepressant activities and the mechanisms, at least in part, relate to up-regulation of monoaminergic neurotransmitters (5-HT and DA) and activation of the BDNF signaling pathway. Expand
3.09 – Aldosterone Action on Brain and Behavior
Aldosterone's primary role is to maintain sodium homeostasis as regulated by the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system. Besides angiotensin and ACTH, potassium is a major contributor for the releaseExpand
GABAA/benzodiazepine receptor complex mediates the anxiolytic-like effect of Montanoa tomentosa.
TLDR
The results corroborate the anxiolytic-like actions of Montanoa tomentosa and suggest that this effect is mediated through GABAA receptors but not oxytocin receptors. Expand
Coping with the Forced Swim Stressor: Towards Understanding an Adaptive Mechanism
TLDR
It is concluded that the rodent's behavioural response to a forced swim stressor does not reflect depression, and the forced swim experience provides a unique paradigm to investigate the mechanistic underpinning of stress coping and adaptation. Expand

Effect of Serotonin Inhibition on Glucocorticoid and Mineralocorticoid Expression in Various Brain Structures
TLDR
5-HT inhibits hippocampal mineralocorticoid receptor synthesis and that this effect is not mediated by changes in corticosterone hormone secretion, and illustrates the existence of complex mechanisms for corticosteroid receptor regulation in the hippocampus. Expand
Neurokinin 1 Receptor Antagonism Promotes Active Stress Coping Via Enhanced Septal 5-HT Transmission
TLDR
It is found that exposure to forced swim stress increased SP release in the rat lateral septum (LS), a key area in processing emotions and stress responses, and that NK1R blockade can elicit a functionally significant facilitatory effect on 5-HT transmission. Expand
Corticosterone and serotonergic neurotransmission in the hippocampus: functional implications of central corticosteroid receptor diversity.
TLDR
It is proposed that the balance of MR/GR activation can be altered by chronic (stress-related) changes of corticosteroid concentrations, in combination with glucocorticoid feedback resistance, which would lead to a relative dominance of MR-mediated suppressive effects on the activity of the raphe-hippocampal system, which may be a biologically relevant aspect of depression.

Psychological Stress Increases Hippocampal Mineralocorticoid Receptor Levels: Involvement of Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone
TLDR
The interaction between CRH and MR presents a novel mechanism involved in the adaptation of the brain to psychologically stressful events, a pathway with marked consequence for HPA axis regulation. Expand
Anxiolytic-like effects of selective mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid antagonists on fear-enhanced behavior in the elevated plus-maze
TLDR
Fear-motivated immobility behavior was attenuated by the MR antagonist in a dose of 50 or 100 ng ICV, whereas the GR antagonist alone or simultaneous administration of both antagonists had no significant effect. Expand
Participation of the lateral septal nuclei (LSN) in the antidepressant-like actions of progesterone in the forced swimming test (FST)
TLDR
It is revealed that LSN play a role in the antidepressant-like actions of progesterone that appear to be mediated by the GABA(A) receptor. Expand
Glucocorticoid receptors in lateral septum are involved in the modulation of the emotional sequelae induced by social defeat
TLDR
It is suggested that CS secreted by emotionally relevant stimuli acting via GR in LS plays an important role in the modulation of the emotional sequelae induced by social defeat. Expand
Serotonergic mediation of the effects of fluoxetine, but not desipramine, in the rat forced swimming test
TLDR
Depletion of serotonin prevented the behavioral effects of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine in the rat FST, and depletion of serotonin had no impact on the behavior effects induced by the selective norepinephrine reptake inhibitor, desipramine. Expand
Antidepressant properties of the 5-HT4 receptor partial agonist, SL65.0155: Behavioral and neurochemical studies in rats
TLDR
Findings give further support to the hypothesis that the stimulation of serotonin 5-HT(4) receptors may be a therapeutic target for depression. Expand
The involvement of serotonergic system in the antidepressant effect of zinc in the forced swim test
TLDR
The results indicate the specific involvement of the serotonergic system in antidepressant but not the motion behavior of zinc in mice, as well as an increase in the swimming but not climbing parameter of the rat FST observed following zinc administration, indicates the serotonin pathway participation.
