Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is both a major regulator of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the activity of the autonomic nervous system. Besides, it exerts numerous effects on other physiological functions such as appetite control, motor and cognitive behavior and immune function. The basis for these effects is constituted by its distribution in hypothalamic and extrahypothalamic brain areas, the latter being represented by limbic structures such as the central nucleus… CONTINUE READING
