The immobility reaction (animal hypnosis) in the rabbit is related to basal levels of corticosterone and to modifications in 5-HT activity in the brain. In order to investigate the relationship between adrenocortical function, brain 5-HT activity and immobility response in rabbits, the susceptibility to the reaction and 5-HT and 5-HIAA levels in the… CONTINUE READING
