The contribution of the lateral hypothalamic/perifornical (LH/PFx) area in mediating central effects of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) on cardiovascular and behavioral activity was assessed by monitoring blood pressure, heart rate and behavioral responses for a 45-min period after injections of various doses of CRF into the LH/PFx region or the lateral cerebral ventricle (intracerebroventricular, i.c.v.) in conscious, unrestrained rats in a familiar environment. After LH/PFx injection… CONTINUE READING
