Orexinergic neurons originating in the perifornical, lateral hypothalamus project to numerous brain sites including neuroendocrine centers known to be important in the physiologic response to stress. Those projections suggest an action of endogenous orexin on adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) release, either by neuromodulatory effects in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN), or by neuroendocrine actions in the pituitary gland following release into the median eminence. We sought to determine if… CONTINUE READING
