CRH Signalling in the Bed Nucleus of the Stria Terminalis is Involved in Stress-Induced Cardiac Vagal Activation in Conscious Rats

Abstract

The bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) is involved in autonomic and behavioral reactions to fearful stimuli and contains corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) fibers and terminals. The role of CRH in the medial part of the BNST in the regulation of heart rate (HR) and PQ interval of the electrocardiogram was studied under resting conditions and… (More)
