The serotonin(1A) (5-HT(1A)) receptor agonist 8-hydroxy-2-(di-N-propylamino)tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) was administrated to juvenile Arctic charr either by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injections or through a permanent i.p. implanted catheter. 8-OH-DPAT induced an elevation of plasma cortisol in non-stressed fish (receiving the drug through a permanent i.p. catheter), whereas 8-OH-DPAT had the opposite effect when administrated through a standard i.p. injection, dampening the rise in cortisol induced by… CONTINUE READING
