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.
