Abstract

Adrenocortical responses, as expressed by changes in plasma corticosterone concentrations, after ether stress, or photic, acoustic, or sciatic nerve stimulation were studied in rats, with 6-hydroxydopamine or vehicle injected into the medial forebrain bundle (MFB). The neurotoxin partially inhibited the response to photic stimulation only, indicating the involvement of MFB catecholaminergic fibers in the transmission of this response which stimulates adrenocortical secretion.
