(1987) postulated that the attenuation of the interrenal response due to the lack of the stressful influence could be caused by a reduction of the hormone ACTH secretion, or by the hypothalamic secretion of the liberating factor of the corticotrophin decrease, resulting in a decline of the plasma cortisol.
