PURPOSE A few studies have indicates that the sesame oil influences anxiety, but many reports show that β-1 adrenoceptors (ARs) of the basolateral amygdala (BLA) plays a pivotal role in this regard. Therefore, in this study the effect of acute injection of sesame oil on anxiety-like behavior in the presence and absence of the BLA β-1 ARs in the male Wistar rats were investigated. METHODS Guide cannulas, for seven groups of rats, were implanted bilaterally into the BLA. Two weeks after the… 
Enduring amnesia induced by ICV scopolamine is reversed by sesame oil in male rats.
TLDR
Intracerebroventricular injection of scopolamine has a residual effect on memory after six days, and sesame oil has an improving effect on spatial memory; however this effect is possibly mediated by mechanisms other than antioxidant effect of sesameOil.
Sesame oil mitigates memory impairment, oxidative stress, and neurodegeneration in a rat model of Alzheimer's disease. A pivotal role of NF-κB/p38MAPK/BDNF/PPAR-γ pathways.
TLDR
The neuroprotective effect of SO involved the modulation of different mechanisms targeting oxidative stress, neuroinflammation, and cognitive functions and this may be attributed to the synergistic effect of their active components.
Garlic (Allium sativum) improves anxiety- and depressive-related behaviors and brain oxidative stress in diabetic rats
TLDR
It is indicated that garlic alleviates anxiety- and depression-related behaviors in the diabetic rats possibly by attenuation of brain oxidative stress.
Modulation of anxiety behavior in gonadectomized animals.
TLDR
The effects of opioid drugs and androgen on the modulation of anxiety behavior that have been implicated in anxiety behavior are highlighted and how the opioids and androgens may contribute to adaptive responses associated with anxiety is considered.

Interaction between Anxiolytic Effects of Testosterone and β-1 Adrenoceptors of Basolateral Amygdala
TLDR
The results interestingly proposed that the interaction between testosterone and β-1 ARs is in part related to common mechanism and other neurotransmitters include gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and serotonin.
Role of β1-adrenoceptor in the basolateral amygdala of rats with anxiety-like behavior
TLDR
The results suggested that the beta1-AR played an important role in anxiety-like behavior, and inhibition of the beta 1-AR in the BLA could produce anxiolytic effect.
Betaxolol, a selective β 1 -adrenergic receptor antagonist, diminishes anxiety-like behavior during early withdrawal from chronic cocaine administration in rats
TLDR
The present findings suggest that the anxiolytic-like effect of betaxolol on cocaine-induced anxiety may be related to its effect on amygdalar beta(1)-adrenergic receptors that are up-regulated during early phases of drug withdrawal.
Thymoquinone produced antianxiety-like effects in mice through modulation of GABA and NO levels.
TLDR
The present study suggests an involvement of NO-cGMP and GABAergic pathways in the anxiolytic-like activity of thymoquinone in mice under unstressed and stressed conditions.
Anxiolytic-like actions of testosterone in the burying behavior test: role of androgen and GABA-benzodiazepine receptors
TLDR
Neither repeated- nor single-treatment with 3alpha-androstanediol nor androsterone produced a reduction of anxiety-like behavior, and the possible participation of androgen or GABA(A)-benzodiazepine receptors in the anxiolytic-like effect of TP was analyzed.
Sesaminol glucosides protect beta-amyloid peptide-induced cognitive deficits in mice.
TLDR
D Dietary SG showed a protective effect against Abeta-induced learning and memory deficits in passive avoidance and the Morris water maze test, suggesting that SG protects against cognitive deficits induced by Abeta, in part through its antioxidant activity.
The organizational role of testicular hormones and the androgen receptor in anxiety-related behaviors and sensorimotor gating in rats.
TLDR
A role of T before adulthood is indicated in the organization of anxiety-related behaviors, activity, the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and sensorimotor gating in rats, all of which appears to be AR independent.
8-OH-DPAT in the median raphe nucleus decreases while in the medial septal area it may increase anxiety in female rats
TLDR
Data suggest that 8-OH-DPAT acting on 5-HT1A somatodendritic autoreceptors decreases anxiety, however, at a specific dosage and acting on postsynaptic receptors of the medial septal area, 8- OH- DPAT can increase anxiety.
EFFECT OF BUTTER AND SESAME OILS ON AVOIDANCE MEMORY OF DIABETIC RATS
TLDR
Diabetes, especially in diabetic butter oil group decreased learning and memory and the elevation of cholesterol may be a reason for diabetic cognition impairment.
Response of amygdalar norepinephrine to footshock and GABAergic drugs using in vivo microdialysis and HPLC
TLDR
These studies used in vivo microdialysis and high-performance liquid chromatography to examine levels of norepinephrine within the amygdala in response to both footshock and GABAergic compounds, consistent with the hypothesis that drugs that are capable of modulating memory do so by altering levels of NE inside the amygdala.
