Running becomes a stress, termed running stress, if it persists above the lactate threshold (LT) and results in enhanced plasma ACTH level in humans. Although the exact underlying regulation mechanism is still uncertain, hypothalamic AVP has been shown to play a dominant role in running-induced ACTH release. It is still not known, however, whether running stress activates the hypothalamic AVP-containing neurons that are involved in the activation of the ACTH response. For this reason, we… CONTINUE READING
