Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) antagonist suppresses stress-induced locomotor activity in an amphibian.    
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1646155  
    "
Intracerebroventricular (icv) injections of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF; 25 ng) given to male rough-skinned newts (Taricha granulosa) stimulated locomotor activity tested in a circular arena starting 35 min after the injection.  
    The CRF receptor antagonist, alpha-helical CRF9-41 (ahCRF; 250 or 500 ng), injected icv concurrently with CRF blocked CRF-induced locomotor activity. In contrast, icv injection of ahCRF had no effect on spontaneous locomotor activity.  
    Other studies examined the effect of ahCRF on the elevated locomotor activity that was observed when the animals were stressed (handled or placed in warm water). The CRF antagonist dose dependently attenuated the response to either handling or warm stress tested 2 hr after drug treatment.  
    We also examined the effect of the alpha 2-adrenergic agonist, clonidine, on spontaneous and CRF-induced locomotor activity. Clonidine injected icv dose dependently suppressed spontaneous locomotor activity but not CRF-induced locomotor activity.  
    These studies support the hypothesis that endogenous CRF is involved in mediating stress-induced locomotor activity and indicate that the effects of CRF on locomotor activity are independent of activation of the alpha 2-adrenergic system."

    Neuromodulatory effects of gonadotropin releasing hormone on olfactory receptor neurons.    
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10818129  
    "
The terminal nerve is an anterior cranial nerve that innervates the lamina propria of the chemosensory epithelia of the nasal cavity.  
    The function of the terminal nerve is ambiguous, but it has been suggested to serve a neuromodulatory role. We tested this hypothesis by exposing olfactory receptor neurons from mudpuppies (Necturus maculosus) to a peptide, gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), that is found in cells and fibers of the terminal nerve. We used voltage-clamped whole-cell recordings to examine the effects of 0. 5-50 micrometer GnRH on voltage-activated currents in olfactory receptor neurons from epithelial slices.  
    We found that GnRH increases the magnitude, but does not alter the kinetics, of a tetrodotoxin-sensitive inward current. This increase in magnitude generally begins 5-10 min after initial exposure to GnRH, is sustained for at least 60 min during GnRH exposure, and recovers to baseline within 5 min after GnRH is washed off. This effect occurred in almost 60% of the total number of olfactory receptor neurons examined and appeared to be seasonal: approximately 67% of neurons responded to GnRH during the courtship and mating season, compared with approximately 33% during the summer, when the sexes separate. GnRH also appears to alter an outward current in the same cells.  
    Taken together, these data suggest that GnRH increases the excitability of olfactory receptor neurons and that the terminal nerve functions to modulate the odorant sensitivity of olfactory receptor neurons."
