Bombesin (BB)-like peptides have been shown to affect neuroendocrine and neural functions related to the stress response and the modulation of conditioned fear. In line with this view, central administration of gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP; a mammalian analogue of BB) or its receptor antagonist (D-Tpi6, Leu13 psi[CH2NH]-Leu14) BB(6–14) (RC-3095) modulates conditioned fear. The present study examined the effects of bilateral infusions of GRP or its receptor antagonist (RC-3095) into the… CONTINUE READING
