Endotoxin- or pro-inflammatory cytokine-induced sickness behavior as an animal model of depression: focus on anhedonia

Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews

May 10, 2005

Richard De La Garza

Abstract

In humans, exposure to endotoxins or pro-inflammatory cytokines induces a number of neuropsychological symptoms collectively referred to as 'flu-like syndrome'. The degree of overlap between flu-like syndrome and major depressive disorder is considerable and a close linkage between thes...read more

Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a psychiatric condition characterized by severe weight loss and secondary problems associated with malnutrition. Here is the latest research on AN.

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.

Genetics of Behavior

This feed focuses on the high throughput technologies used to dissect the genetics of behavior and their associated disorders. Discover the latest research here.

Influenza

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by an influenza virus.Symptoms can be mild to severe. The most common symptoms include: high fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing, sneezing, and feeling tired. Discover the latest research on influenza here.

Influenza Virus

Influenza viruses comprise a major class of human respiratory pathogens, responsible for causing morbidity and mortality worldwide. Discover the latest research on Influenza Viruses here.

Neurotransmitters in Feeding

Serotonin and dopamine are neurotransmitters involved in feeding and eating disorders. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotransmitters in feeding.

Psychopharmacology

is the scientific study of the effects drugs have on mood, sensation, thinking, and behavior. It is distinguished from neuropsychopharmacology, which emphasizes the correlation between drug-induced changes in the functioning of cells in the nervous system and changes in consciousness and behavior. Discover the latest research on psychopharmacology here

Hippocampus & Feeding

Human and animal data suggest that the hippocampus plays many roles in regulating food intake. Discover the latest research on hippocampus and feeding here.

Hedonic Feeding

Hedonic feeding is eating to obtain pleasure in the absence of an energy deficit. Recent evidence suggests that the hunger hormone ghrelin is involved in hedonic feeding through the dopaminergic reward pathway. Discover the latest research on hedonic feeding 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.

Viral Respiratory Diseases

Viral respiratory infections can affect the upper or lower respiratory tract. These lung and airway infections can be caused by numerous different viruses and can be dangerous for those who have a weakened immune system. Discover the latest research on viral respiratory diseases here.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders-including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and eating disorders that are not otherwise specified, which include binge eating disorder-are challenging health issues. Here is the latest research on eating disorders.

Hypochondriasis

Hypochondriasis is a psychiatric syndrome characterized by the fear of disease and the persistent pursuit of medical care. Often diagnosis is hampered by its stigmatizing label and lack of valid diagnostic criteria. Discover the latest research on Hypochondriasis here.

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.

Depression

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder, is a medical condition associated with negative emotional, behavioural, and cognitive symptoms. Here is the latest research on this mood disorder.

Hypothalamic Neoplasms

Hypothalamic tumors are located within the hypothalamus of the brain. The tumors may arise from abnormal growth of glial cells, known as gliomas or may be caused from the spread from surrounding structures, such as optic tumors. Here is the latest research on hypothalamic neoplasms.

Dopamine & Behavior

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter and a hormone commonly associated with the brain's pleasure and reward system. Here is the latest research on its role in affecting and guiding human behaviour.

Dopamine & Feeding

Midbrain dopamine neurons have long been implicated in mediating reward behavior and the motivational aspects of feeding behavior. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to dopamine and feeding.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C virus causes acute and chronic liver disease in humans, including chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Discover the latest research on Hepatitis C here.

Neural Dynamics in Primates

Here is the latest research on neuroelectrophysiology and thalmo-cortical and neural dynamics in primates.

RPGRIP1L Gene & Neurons

RPGRIP1L is a ciliary gene that is ubiquitously expressed in human embryonic and fetal tissues. It functions in neurodevelopment, including the development of hypothalamic arcuate neurons. Defects in this gene are associated with Joubert syndrome (type 7) and Meckel syndrome (type 5). Here is the latest research on the role of this gene in neurons.
