Stress Modulation of Opposing Circuits in the Bed Nucleus of the Stria Terminalis.
Atlanta, United States. In Neuropsychopharmacology, Jan 2016
In this review, we will examine how stress interacts with the neuromodulators, corticotropin-releasing factor, norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin to affect the circuitry of the BNST as well as how synaptic plasticity in the BNST is modulated by stress, resulting in long-lasting changes in the circuit and behavioral state.
Alcohol and violence: neuropeptidergic modulation of monoamine systems.
Porto Alegre, Brazil. In Ann N Y Acad Sci, Sep 2015
In anticipation and reaction to aggressive behavior, neuropeptides such as corticotropin-releasing factor, neuropeptide Y, opioid peptides, and vasopressin interact with monoamines, GABA, and glutamate to attenuate and amplify aggressive behavior in alcohol-consuming individuals.
Key role of CRF in the skin stress response system.
Memphis, United States. In Endocr Rev, 2013
The discovery of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) or CRH defining the upper regulatory arm of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, along with the identification of the corresponding receptors (CRFRs 1 and 2), represents a milestone in our understanding of central mechanisms regulating body and local homeostasis.
