The long suspected and recently demonstrated abnormality in neuroendocrine control in patients with severe depression indicates that the neurochemical and neuroanatomical analysis of the neuroendocrine response to stress may provide valuable information in understanding the etiology of severe endogenous depression. Rats were immobilized for 1, 2, 3 or 5 hours consecutively or 2 hours per day for 5 days, sacrificed and plasma corticosterone (as an index of the release of adrenocorticotropic… CONTINUE READING
