The purpose of the present study was to investigate the possible role of vasopressin (ADH) in the control of thirst. With this aim spontaneous water intake (WI) was examined in conscious dogs after 1) electric stimulation in the basal forebrain causing release of ADH, 2) injection of 0.03, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.30, and 3.00 mU of ADH into the third cerebral(More)
Body temperature, urine output, osmotic and free water clearances, plasma osmolality, sodium and potassium concentrations, blood lactate level, osmotic thirst and central blood volume were measured in dogs exposed to cold (+1 to -8 degrees C) for 1-3 hours and compared to those obtained under control conditions at ambient temperatures (18-20 degrees C). In(More)
Body temperature, water intake, urine output, sodium and potassium excretion, osmolal and free water clearance, plasma osmolality, sodium and potassium concentrations and osmotic thirst were examined in conscious dogs during pyrogen fever and compared to those found under control conditions. Arterial blood pressure and central venous pressure were also(More)
Seven dogs were chronically implanted with 30 electrodes directed at various structures of the basal forebrain. Osmotic thirst threshold (expressed as an increase in plasma osmolality and a decrease in cellular water content caused by an intravenous infusion of 5% NaCl, necessary to induce drinking) was measured during electric stimulation of the basal(More)
To determine whether centrally released vasopressin influences thirst, observations of osmotic thirst threshold, osmotic load excretion and postloading restitution of plasma osmolality were made in dogs in control experiments and during infusion of AVP antagonists into the third ventricle. Significant elevation of osmotic thirst threshold was elicited by(More)
Reactivity of the thirst mechanism to osmotic stimuli was measured in conscious dogs chronically implanted with electrodes in the basal forebrain. It was found that the thirst threshold to the osmotic stimulus increases markedly during electrical stimulation of the preoptic area, septum, nucleus accumbens septi, and to smaller degree during stimulation of(More)
Rectal temperature (Tre) was measured in five dogs during 1 h of rest and 1 h of moderate treadmill exercise (1.2 m/s up a 12 degree slope), with no infusion and with continuous infusion (40 mul/min) of normocalcic (1.3 mM Ca2+, 151.5 mM Na+) and hypercalcic (2.6 mM Ca2+, 149.6 mM Na+) concentrations of artificial cerebrospinal fluids into the left lateral(More)
