Exogenous corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) causes centrally mediated behavioral changes including decreased feeding and increased grooming. These behavioral changes are also seen in response to some stressors. However, the role of endogenous CRF in the behavioral response to stressors has not been investigated fully. We report below our findings on the behavioral effects of alpha-helical CRF (9-41), a recently discovered competitive antagonist of CRF-induced ACTH release. Alpha-helical CRF… CONTINUE READING
