1983,1986). , 1984) that the sensitivity to DA agonists was augmented in animals that had received repeated immobilization stress, an effect that was prevented by prior administration of naloxone. It was suggested that the acute stressinduced activation of enkephalin activity in the VTA served to release DA neurons from tonic inhibition. , 1988). In addition to the effects of stressors on central opioid release, stressors may affect central opiate receptors. For example, Sirakova et al. , 24 h coupled with food and water deprivation) enhanced 6 opioid receptor binding, with little effect on p receptor binding in rat whole brain.

DBA/2J mice, but produced a marked retardation of escape responding in the BALB/cByJ strain. Thus, a particular strain is not generally vulnerable or invulnerable (hardy) to the action of a stressor, but rather the impact of a stressor will be dependent on the specific behavioral task in which animals are tested. Similarly, within a given strain, vulnerability to the effects of a stressor on ICSS is region-specific.

1983). There are several candidates that might act as a mediator between the CNS and immune system. Among others, various pituitary hormones, including ACTH, P-endorphin, prolactin, and growth hormone, are subject to neural modulation and their potential effects may thus be secondary to central neurotransmitter alterations. , 1979). , 1981), and it has been suggested that CN%immune system interactions may be mediated by surface receptors on lymphocytes, which traverse microenvironments richly innervated by autonomic fibers (Williams and Felten, 1981).
