Anxiolytic-like effects of intra-lateral septal infusions of the neuropeptide Y (NPY) were assessed during several estrus phases in Wistar rats tested in two animal models of anxiety-like behavior. In a conflict operant test, results showed that during late proestrus, intra-lateral septal nuclei infusions of NPY (1.0 microg/microl, P<0.05; 2.0 microg/microl, P<0.05; 2.5 microg/microl, P<0.05) increased the number of immediately punished responses. During metestrus-diestrus only the highest… CONTINUE READING
