Some Effects of X-Irradiaion on the Adrenal Response to Hypothalamic Stimulation in Rats

Some Effects of X-Irradiaion on the Adrenal Response to Hypothalamic Stimulation in Rats

Date: January 1967
Creator: Agnew, Robert Laing
Description: Exactly where in the hypothalamus is the adrenal-pituitary response to X-irradiation "triggered" or initiated? Moreover, does ionizing radiation act directly on specific centers in the brain or does it act indirectly via the production of some humoral agents? Finally, what role does the hypothalamus play in the radiation-syndrome? The purpose of the present study was to attempt to answer these questions by determining the effects of two stressor agents, X-irradiation and electrical stimulation applied either singly or together, on the activity of the adrenal-pituitary axis. The parameters measured were changes in plasma corticosterone, in circulating eosinopihils, and in adrenal gland weight.
