Antidepressant-like effects of curcumin in chronic mild stress of rats: Involvement of its anti-inflammatory action
Effects of curcumin on chronic, unpredictable, mild, stress-induced depressive-like behaviour and structural plasticity in the lateral amygdala of rats.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that curcumin exhibits neuroprotection and antidepressant-like effects in the CUMS-induced depression model, which appears to be mediated by modulating synapse-associated proteins within the LA.

Brain-derived-neurotrophic-factor (BDNF) stress response in rats bred for learned helplessness
TLDR
It is shown here that in cLH rats, acute immobilization stress does not induce a reduction of BDNF expression in the hippocampus which is observed in Sprague–Dawley and cNLH rats.

Chronic treatment of rats with the antidepressant amitriptyline attenuates the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical system.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that during amitriptyline treatment a rise in limbic MR may be the initial phenomenon in a successively adjusting HPA system, as evidenced by the decreasing plasma hormone concentrations, declining adrenal size, and up-regulation of GR in particular brain regions.
