The adrenocortical response to stress from the pre-hatching period to the adult state in the pigeon: Thalamic participation.


The stress-induced adrenocortical response was kinetically evaluated for 100 min after ether vapor exposure in late embryos (30 h before hatching) and in 1, 2, 3 and 6-wk-old squabs. An-adult-pattern of corticosterone profile was seen in intact 6-wk-old pigeons, i.e. a polyphasic increase of corticosterone including successive peaks at 12-15, 35, 60 and 90… (More)
