Neuropeptides and Stress: Proceedings of the First Hans Selye Symposium, Held in Montreal in October 1986

Overview

Neuropeptides and Stress presents a comprehensive survey by leading pioneers in the field of the knowledge and concepts implicating neuropeptides in the regulations of responses to stress. Topics covered include: recent advances on the regulation and modulation of the behavioral, endocrine, autonomic, gastrointestinal, immune and analgesic responses to stress by neuropeptides. Neuroanatomical and biological data are considered. Special emphasis is given to ...

Studies presented at the symposium held in Montreal in Oct. 1986. Topics discussed include the role of brain peptides in the endocrine and ulcerogenic response to stress; the interrelation of cysteamine, neuropeoptides and duodental ulcer; stress, analgesia, and neuropeptides; the opioid-mediated effects of electroconvulsive shock and central nervous system injury on nociception; and the connection between stress, consummatory behavior, and gastrointestinal transit.
