Benzodiazepine receptors in rat cerebral cortex and hippocampus undergo rapid and reversible changes after acute stress.

Abstract

Rats were submitted to forced swimming and were killed 15 min after initiation of the stress and at 1 h, 1 day and 4 days thereafter. Immediately after the stress there was a decrease of 30% in the density of [3H]flunitrazepam binding sites in the cerebral cortex and of 27% in the hippocampal formation, with no changes in all the other brain areas studied… (More)
