  1. ncbi Fully automated sleep deprivation in mice as a tool in sleep research
    Thomas Fenzl
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Kraepelinstrasse 2 10, 80804 Munich, Germany
    J Neurosci Methods 166:229-35. 2007
    ..The setup can easily be introduced to a variety of home cages and is individually adaptable to each animal to be sleep deprived...

    Thomas Fenzl
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Kraepelinstr 2, 80804 Munich, Bavaria, Germany
    Behav Brain Res 203:143-5. 2009
    ..No significant differences were obtained between both groups suggesting that under basal conditions the circadian variation of hypothalamic orexin is not mediated by CRH, at least not via CRH-R1...
  3. ncbi Wake-promoting effects of orexin: Its independent actions against the background of an impaired corticotropine-releasing hormone receptor system
    Thomas Fenzl
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Kraepelinstrasse 2, 80804 Munich, Germany
    Behav Brain Res 222:43-50. 2011
    ..Consistent results were obtained from all corresponding control littermate experiments. According to our results we conclude that the wake-promoting effects of orexin are not influenced by a possible contribution of CRH...
  4. ncbi Sleep disturbances in highly stress reactive mice: modeling endophenotypes of major depression
    Thomas Fenzl
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Kraepelinstrasse 2, 80804 Munich, Germany
    BMC Neurosci 12:29. 2011
    ..Eight adult males of each of the three breeding lines were equipped with epidural EEG and intramuscular electromyogram (EMG) electrodes. After recovery, EEG and EMG recordings were performed for two days...
  5. ncbi Echolocation calls and communication calls are controlled differentially in the brainstem of the bat Phyllostomus discolor
    Thomas Fenzl
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Kraepelinstr, 2 10, Munich, 80804, Germany
    BMC Biol 3:17. 2005
    ..This study intended to clarify whether echolocation calls and communication calls are controlled differentially below the level of the PAG via separate vocal pathways before converging on the motoneurons used in vocalization...
  6. ncbi Central deficiency of corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor type 1 (CRH-R1) abolishes effects of CRH on NREM but not on REM sleep in mice
    Christoph P N Romanowski
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, Germany
    Sleep 33:427-36. 2010
    ..Therefore, we investigated in CNS-specific CRH receptor type 1 deficient mice whether centrally administered CRH could induce its sleep-wake modulatory effects without peripheral induction of HPA activity...
  7. ncbi Rhythmicity in mice selected for extremes in stress reactivity: behavioural, endocrine and sleep changes resembling endophenotypes of major depression
    Chadi Touma
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, Germany
    PLoS ONE 4:e4325. 2009
    ..This so-called 'stress reactivity' (SR) mouse model consists of three separate breeding lines selected for either high (HR), intermediate (IR), or low (LR) corticosterone increase in response to stressors...
  8. ncbi Prognostic and symptomatic aspects of rapid eye movement sleep in a mouse model of posttraumatic stress disorder
    Stephanie Anna Polta
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Munich, Germany
    Front Behav Neurosci 7:60. 2013
    ..Translated to the situation in humans, REMS may constitute a viable, objective, and non-invasive biomarker in PTSD and other trauma-related psychiatric disorders, which could guide pharmacological interventions in humans at high risk...
