Neurocircuitry of stress: central control of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical axis

Trends in Neurosciences

Feb 1, 1997

James P Herman, W E Cullinan

Abstract

Integration of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal stress response occurs by way of interactions between stress-sensitive brain circuitry and neuroendocrine neurons of the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN). Stressors involving an immediate physiologic threat ('systemic' stressors...read more
