Cytokine involvement in stress may depend on corticotrophin releasing factor to sensitize ethanol withdrawal anxiety

Brain, Behavior, and Immunity

Darin J KnappGeorge R Breese

Abstract

Stress has been shown to facilitate ethanol withdrawal-induced anxiety. Defining neurobiological mechanisms through which stress has such actions is important given the associated risk of relapse. While CRF has long been implicated in the action of stress, current results show that stre...read more

Limbic System

The limbic system is comprised of several different parts of the brain involved in emotion, motivation, learning, and memory. Discover the latest research on the limbic system here.

Phenylketonuria (PKU)

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by abnormalities in amino acid metabolism caused as a result of deficiency in phenylalanine hydroxylase, an enzyme that converts phenylalanine to tyrosine. Here is the latest research.

Serotonin

Serotonin is a multifaceted neurotransmitter with various functions, including reward and learning. Discover the latest research, including the latest computational studies, of serotonin here.

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.

Phenylketonuria

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that results from a deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). Discover the latest research on phenylketonuria here.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.

Neuronal Circuits for Anxiety

Anxiety is controlled by numerous and complex neuronal circuits. Discover the latest research on Neuronal Circuits for Anxiety here.

Amygdala: Sensory Processes

Amygdalae, nuclei clusters located in the temporal lobe of the brain, play a role in memory, emotional responses, and decision-making. Here is the latest research on sensory processes in the amygdala.

Chemokines & Chemokine Receptors

Chemokines are a subset of cytokines which induce chemotaxis in cells expressing chemokine receptors. Chemokines can be broadly categorized into two functional subgroups, homeostatic (basal expression in lymphoid tissues for surveillance purposes) or inflammatory (released during injury to recruit immune effector cells). Chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors which, upon chemokine binding, induce calcium influx into the cell. Find the latest research on chemokines and chemokine receptors here.

Microglia And CNS Diseases

Microglia are resident macrophages of the CNS. They play a role in scavenging the CNS for plaques, phagocytosis, and extracellular signaling. Here is the latest research on their role in CNS diseases.
