The effects of injections of M- and N-cholinergic blocking agents into the antero-medial hypothalamus (HM) and the midbrain central gray (GC) on the aggressive behavior of cats, evoked by microinjections of carbachol into those areas, were investigated in chronic experiments. The influence of pharmacological suppression of the M-cholinergic system in HM on the carbachol-induced aggression response from GC and vice versa was also studied. In the experiments a quantitative method was applied for…

Midbrain cholinergic mechanisms in elicitation of hypothalamic aggressive responses in cats
The participation of serotoninergic system in the regulation of emotional-defensive behavior evoked by intrahypothalamic carbachol injections in the cat.
TLDR
Results data indicate that the 5-HT system exerts an inhibiting influence on the emotional-defensive behavior induced by the cholinergic system.
Adrenergic modulation of the hypothalamic cholinergic mechanism in the control of emotional-defensive behavior in the cat.
TLDR
Results show that emotional-defensive behavior cannot be triggered by an activation of the hypothalamic noradrenergic system, however, emotional defensive behavior induced by cholinergic stimulation ofThe hypothalamus may be modified by changes in the activity of the leptin-based noradRenergic system.
Serotonin depletion with P-chlorophenylalanine in the cat: effects on carbachol-induced defensive behavior and regional brain amine content.
TLDR
D dopamine (DA) level significantly increased in the amygdala and posterior hypothalamus with tendency to increase in the anterior hypothalamus and midbrain, and changes in DA content indicate that there are interactions between the 5-HT/DA systems.

Numerous reports are to be found in the literature pertaining to a group of somatomotor and autonomic responses in experimental animals which are described by a host of names, the more common of
The effects of lateral midbrain lesions on evoked behavioral responses
TLDR
The authors attempted to study the effects of lateral tegmental lesions on the behavioral manifestations of autonomic or somatic manifestations of “rage" obtained by electrical stimulation of the rostral perifornical region of the hypothalamus in acute “thalamic” cats.
The Chemical Coding of Aggression in Brain
TLDR
Evidence is presented suggesting that each of these compounds of low molecular weight in the brain may have selective and independent actions in mediating the expression of two neurologically distinct classes of aggression: affective and predatory aggression.
Neurological substrates of aggressive behavior.
TLDR
The objectives will be to define patterns of agonistic behavior, to examine the neural substrates of specific aggressive behaviors and to define neural mechanisms underlying these latter patterns.
Tremorine-Induced Rage and Its Antagonism by Atropine.∗
TLDR
In the cat Tremorine produced a directed, sustained rage and gastric lesions that are antagonized by atropine and appear to involve a central cholinergic mechanism of subcortical origin.
