The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of an acute stressor (restraint) versus a chronic stressor (social isolation) on the expression of mRNAs for corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor type 2 (CRH-R2) and urocortin 1 (Ucn 1) and urocortin 2 (Ucn 2) in the cardiovascular system of socially monogamous prairie voles of both sexes.
