- Photoperiodic activation of fos-like immunoreactive protein in neurones within the tuberal hypothalamus of Japanese quailS L Meddle
School of Biological Sciences, University of Bristol, UK
J Comp Physiol A 176:79-89. 1995..The evidence supports the view that the neurones being activated are involved in a specific fashion in the avian photoperiodic response...
- Beta-endorphin cells in the arcuate nucleus: projections to the supraoptic nucleus and changes in expression during pregnancy and parturitionA J Douglas
Division of Biomedical Sciences, University of Edinburgh, George Square, Edinburgh, UK
J Neuroendocrinol 14:768-77. 2002..Thus, beta-endorphin cells in the arcuate nucleus project to the supraoptic nucleus and increased innervation during pregnancy may explain the enhanced endogenous opioid inhibition of oxytocin neurones...
- Reduced activity of the noradrenergic system in the paraventricular nucleus at the end of pregnancy: implications for stress hyporesponsivenessA J Douglas

- Hypothalamic pro-GnRH-GAP, GnRH-I and GnRH-II during the onset of photorefractoriness in the white-crowned sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys gambelii)S L Meddle
Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology, Centre for Integrative Physiology, School of Veterinary Biomedical Sciences, Royal Dick School of Veterinary Medicine, Summerhall, Edinburgh, UK
J Neuroendocrinol 18:217-26. 2006..Taken together, these results suggest that, in Gambel's white-crowned sparrow, a decrease in GnRH-I secretion is the initial step for the onset of photorefractoriness and not a decrease in GnRH-I biosynthesis...
- Social stress induces hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis responses in lactating rats bred for high trait anxietyA J Douglas
Centre for Integrative Physiology, College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH8 9XD, UK
Eur J Neurosci 25:1599-603. 2007..Thus, responsiveness of the stress axis in lactation is dependent upon the innate level of anxiety of the dam and, as a consequence, her reactiveness to social threat...
- Differential mechanisms for regulation of the stress response across latitudinal gradientsC W Breuner
Univ of Texas at Austin, Integrative Biology, 1 Univ Station C 0930, Austin, TX 78712, USA
Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 285:R594-600. 2003..These differences could lead to dramatically different physiological and behavioral responses to stress...
- Resident-intruder trait aggression is associated with differences in lysine vasopressin and serotonin receptor 1A (5-HT1A) mRNA expression in the brain of pre-pubertal female domestic pigs (Sus scrofa)R B D'Eath
Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Sustainable Livestock Systems, Scottish Agricultural College, Edinburgh, UK
J Neuroendocrinol 17:679-86. 2005..Moreover, these findings support a central role for vasopressin and serotonin in the mediation of high trait aggression in prepubertal female pigs...
