Oxytocin (OT), vasopressin (AVP), and corticotropin (ACTH) levels were measured in peripheral plasma of male rats subjected to one of three models of stress: restraint, cold, or ether. ACTH secretion was increased in all three groups compared to unstressed controls. OT secretion was increased in rats subjected to restraint or ether but not cold. AVP… (More)
