Previous work from this laboratory demonstrated that intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) administration of IgG antibodies directed against selected neuropeptides changed the density of opioid receptors, suggesting that neuropeptides in the CNS can perform a regulatory role. To further test this hypothesis, we administered anticorticotropin (CRF) IgG to rats… CONTINUE READING
