Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The immobilization of rats for 2 min with repetition after 3 min induces a significant increase in the secretion of thyroid hormones.

     
  2. 2.

    This increase in secretion is abolished by the administration of the α-blocker prazosin 1 h before exposure.

     
  3. 3.

    The acute stress induced by repeated immobilization increases the activity of the thyroid conversion of T4.
