Abstract

The hypothalamic hormone GnRH was found to potentiate behavioral effects of DOPA and serotonin. In addition, GnRH was observed to reduce slightly audiogenic seizures as well as spontaneous motor activity. No significant effects were observed against footshock induced fighting or oxotremorine effects. These studies support our concept of the actions of hypothalamic peptides on the central nervous system.
