Blockade of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) function in the posterior hypothalamus of rats elicits a pattern of physiological and behavioral arousal consisting of increases in heart rate, respiration and blood pressure as well as intense locomotor stimulation and a selective enhancement of avoidance responding. The present study was conducted to assess the possibility that GABA-mediated neurotransmission in the posterior hypothalamus of the rat may regulate anxiety. Male rats were trained in a… CONTINUE READING
