The characteristics of the responses of the hypothalamo-hypophyseal-adrenal system to restriction stress and administration of lipopolysaccharide and interleukin-2 were studied in gray rats selected for the maintenance and absence of aggressive behavior in relation to humans. These experiments demonstrated decreased levels of corticosterone and ACTH in the plasma of tame rats in restriction stress and after administration of lipopolysaccharide as compared with non-tame rats. After… CONTINUE READING
