Cholinergic influences on hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical activity of stressed rats: an approach utilizing agonists and antagonists.

Abstract

Cholinergic involvement in the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) system of male rats was evaluated using muscarinic (atropine and methacholine) and nicotine (mecamylamine and nicotine) agents, which were selected for their specificity on cholinergic receptors (ChR). They were administered either intracerebroventricularly (icv) to… (More)
