Both alpha(1)- and beta(1)-adrenoceptors in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis are involved in the expression of conditioned contextual fear
(British Journal of Pharmacology, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
BACKGROUND and PURPOSE The bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) is a limbic structure that is involved in the expression of conditioned contextual fear. Among the numerous neural inputs to the BNST, noradrenergic ...
Lateral septal area alpha(1)-and alpha(2)-adrenoceptors differently modulate baroreflex activity in unanaesthetized rats
(Experimental Physiology, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
The lateral septal area (LSA) is a limbic structure involved in autonomic, neuroendocrine and behavioural responses. An inhibitory influence of the LSA on baroreflex activity has been reported; however, the local ...
Glutamate and GABA neurotransmission are increased in paraventricular nucleus of hypothalamus in rats induced to 6-OHDA parkinsonism: Involvement of nNOS
(Acta Physiologica, 2019-07-01) [Artigo]
Aim: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that manifests itself clinically after reaching an advanced pathological stage. Besides motor signals, PD patients present cardiovascular and autonomic ...
Bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and the cardiovascular responses to chemoreflex activation
(Autonomic Neuroscience-basic & Clinical, 2012-04-03) [Artigo]
Several studies from our group have indicated that the BNST play an important role in baroreflex modulation. However, the involvement of the BNST in the chemoreflex activity is unknown. Thus, in the present study, we ...
Nitric oxide alterations in cardiovascular system of rats with Parkinsonism induced by 6-OHDA and submitted to previous exercise
(Life Sciences, 2018-07-01) [Artigo]
Studies showed that physical exercise decreases the risk of developing Parkinson's disease (PD) as slowing its progression. Nitric oxide (NO) increases in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc) of individuals with PD. ...
Chemoreflex and baroreflex alterations in Parkinsonism induced by 6-OHDA in unanesthetized rats
(Neuroscience Letters, 2015-10-21) [Artigo]
Parkinson's disease (PD) is mainly characterized by motor signals. However, non-motor signals also affect and decrease the quality of life of PD patients. Among these non-motor signs are cardiovascular disorders as orthostatic ...
