Effects of chronic stress on nicotine-induced locomotor activity and corticosterone release in adult and adolescent rats
(Addiction Biology, 2008-03-01) [Artigo]
We examined nicotine-induced locomotion and increase in corticosterone plasma levels in adolescent and adult animals exposed to chronic restraint stress. Adolescent [postnatal day (P) 28-37] and adult (P60-67) rats were ...
Differential behavioral and neuroendocrine effects of repeated nicotine in adolescent and adult rats
(Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior, 2005-03-01) [Artigo]
Despite the high prevalence of tobacco abuse among adolescents, the neurobiology of nicotine addiction has been studied mainly in adult animals. Repeated administration of this drug to adult rats induces behavioral ...
Chronic restraint or variable stresses differently affect the behavior, corticosterone secretion and body weight in rats
(Physiology & Behavior, 2007-01-30) [Artigo]
Organisms are constantly subjected to stressful stimuli that affect numerous physiological processes and activate the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, increasing the release of glucocorticoids. Exposure to chronic ...
