Stress is an unavoidable life experience. It induces mood, cognitive dysfunction and plasticity changes in chronically stressed individuals. Among the various brain regions that have been studied, the hippocampus and amygdala have been observed to have different roles in controlling the limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (limbic-HPA axis). This study investigated how the stress hormone corticosterone (CORT) affects neuronal cells. The first aim is to test whether administration of CORT… Expand
Differential distribution of serotonin receptor subtypes in BNSTALG neurons: Modulation by unpredictable shock stress
TLDR
Data suggest that cell type-specific disruption of 5-HT receptor expression in BNST(ALG) neurons may contribute to stress-induced anxiety disorders. Expand
Neurochemical and behavioral profile of corticosterone : a dose related study
During stressful events, glucocorticoids are secreted peripherally and act on central monoaminergic systems particularly modulating serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) functions, social behavior,Expand
Icariin inhibits corticosterone-induced apoptosis in hypothalamic neurons via the PI3-K/Akt signaling pathway.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that exposure of hypothalamic neurons to CORT causes a significant loss in viability, a significant decrease in mitochondrial potential, an increase in caspase-3 activity, an elevation in intracellular oxygen species elevation and decreased superoxide dismutase activity, and icariin may prevent CORT-induced cell death via activation of the PI3-K/Akt pathway.

The Serotonergic System and Neuroplasticity are Implicated in the Effect of Phytochemicals on Mood and Cognitive Disorders
TLDR
The dendritic abnormalities seen in the hippocampus in animal models of depression and in patients with depression and Alzheimer’s suggest changes in hippocampal circuitry are involved in disorders involving depression, anxiety and learning and memory impairment. Expand
Oxytocin Inhibits Corticosterone-induced Apoptosis in Primary Hippocampal Neurons
TLDR
Results indicate that OT has inhibitory effects on CORT-induced neuronal death in primary hippocampal neurons via acting on OTR, and suggest a therapeutic potential of OT in the treatment of stress-related disorders. Expand
Corticosterone suppresses the proliferation of BV2 microglia cells via glucocorticoid, but not mineralocorticoid receptor.
TLDR
Findings suggested that CORT suppresses the proliferation of BV2 microglia cells accompanied with a cytotoxic effect that is induced by the formation of a CORT-GR complex. Expand
Neuroprotective effect of yokukansan against cytotoxicity induced by corticosterone on mouse hippocampal neurons.
TLDR
The results suggest that yokukansan protects against the cytotoxic effect of a low concentration of corticosterone on hippocampal neurons. Expand
Protective Effects of Ursolic Acid Against Cytotoxicity Induced by Corticosterone: Role of Protein Kinases
TLDR
The cytoprotective potential of UA against corticosterone-induced cytotoxicity and its ability to modulate intracellular signaling pathways involved in cell proliferation and survival suggest that UA may be a relevant strategy to manage stress-related disorders such as MDD. Expand
Chronic restraint stress induces changes in the cerebral Galpha 12/13 and Rho-GTPase signaling network
TLDR
Results suggest that repeated RS affects the expression of genes and proteins known to be engaged in neural plasticity, providing potential targets for further studies aimed at unraveling the molecular mechanisms of stress-related neuropsychiatric diseases. Expand
Phosphodiesterase-2 inhibitor reverses corticosterone-induced neurotoxicity and related behavioural changes via cGMP/PKG dependent pathway.
TLDR
Investigation of how PDE2 inhibitor Bay 60-7550 affects the dysregulated glucocorticoid signalling in neuronal cells and regulates depressive behaviours after chronic stress in mice found that exposure of hippocampal neurons to corticosterone resulted in time- and concentration-dependent increases in PDE 2 expression.

Effects of Chronic Stress on Structure and Cell Function in Rat Hippocampus and Hypothalamus
TLDR
After unpredictable stress, inhibitory input to neurons involved in the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis regulation was suppressed, which may dysregulate the axis and lead to overexposure of the brain to glucocorticoids, and glutamate transmission in the dentate gyrus was enhanced, which could increase vulnerability to cell death.

Interaction of neuropeptide Y and corticotropin-releasing factor signaling pathways in AR-5 amygdalar cells
TLDR
It is suggested that CRF and NPY may counter-regulate each other in amygdalar neurons via reciprocal effects on the protein kinase A pathway. Expand
5-HT(2A) receptor mediated neuronal activation within the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus is desensitized following prolonged glucocorticoid treatment.
TLDR
Results indicate that chronically elevated glucocorticoid levels desensitize serotonergic 5-HT(2A) receptors within the PVN, a phenomenon which may contribute to HPA axis suppression following protracted glucoc Corticosterone hypersecretion. Expand
Activation of glucocorticoid receptors increases 5-HT2A receptor levels
TLDR
An effect of GR activation on 5-HT2A receptor levels was further corroborated by the culture studies as long-term exposure of 3 microM corticosterone to organotypic hippocampal cultures increased 5- HT2A receptors levels (p < 0.05). Expand

TLDR
Evidence is provided that simultaneous changes in the serotonergic and noradrenergic systems, combined with the activation of peripheral and central macrophages that increase the pro-inflammatory cytokine concentrations in the brain and blood, also play a critical role in predisposing to anxiety and depression.

TLDR
These transgenic mice have numerous neuroendocrine characteristics of human depression as well as altered behaviour, and the antidepressant-induced increase in glucocorticoid receptor activity may render the HPA axis more sensitive to glucocORTicoid feedback. Expand
Serotonin Promotes the Survival of Cortical Glutamatergic Neuronsin Vitro

Results indicate that 5-HT does not exert its effects on dividing neuroepithelial cells in the developing cortex, but rather on postmitotic neurons. Expand
Maintenance Treatment with Fluoxetine is Necessary to Sustain Normal Levels of Synaptic Markers in an Experimental Model of Depression: Correlation with Behavioral Response
TLDR
Results indicate that the synapse remodeling induced by FLX in the CA3 region could underlie its behavioral efficacy despite the absence of cytoskeletal remodeling and that the stability of synaptic changes would depend on the continuous administration of the drug. Expand
