The effect of intracerebroventricularly (i.c.v.) administered alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) and gamma 2-MSH on hypothalamic blood flow autoregulation was studied in anesthetized rats at different levels of standardized arterial hypotension. Autoregulation was impaired upon i.c.v. administration of 5 micrograms/kg gamma 2-MSH while alpha-MSH(More)
