Nitric oxide actions in paraventricular nucleus: cardiovascular and neurochemical implications.
We have examined potential functions of nitric oxide (NO) within the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) in urethan-anesthetized male Sprague-Dawley rats. Initial experiments demonstrated microinjection ofExpand

Evidence for the presence, synthesis, immunoreactivity, and uptake of GABA in the nervous system of the snail Helisoma trivolvis
In the present study several techniques were employed to test the hypothesis that gamma‐aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS) of the pond snail HelisomaExpand

Dopaminergic transmission between identified neurons from the mollusk, Lymnaea stagnalis.
1. Dopaminergic transmission was investigated in the central nervous system (CNS) of the freshwater snail, Lymnaea stagnalis. 2. The giant pedal neuron, designated as right pedal dorsal one (RPeD1),Expand

Vasopressin autoreceptors and nitric oxide-dependent glutamate release are required for somatodendritic vasopressin release from rat magnocellular neuroendocrine cells responding to osmotic stimuli.
Magnocellular neuroendocrine cells of the supraoptic nucleus (SON) release vasopressin (VP) systemically and locally during osmotic challenge. Although both central VP and nitric oxide (NO) releaseExpand

A novel role for endogenous pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide in the magnocellular neuroendocrine system.
Central release of vasopressin (VP) by the magnocellular neuroendocrine cells (MNCs) responsible for systemic VP release is believed to be important in modulating the activity of these neurons duringExpand

The effects of intrathecal administration of arginine-vasopressin and substance P on blood pressure and adrenal secretion of epinephrine in rats.
The effects of intrathecally administered arginine-vasopressin (AVP) and substance P (SP) on adrenal medullary secretion of epinephrine were examined in anesthetized Sprague-Dawley rats. PlasmaExpand

Role for the submandibular gland in modulating pulmonary inflammation following induction of systemic anaphylaxis
Previous studies have shown that bilateral decentralization of the superior cervical ganglia (SCG; decentralization) attenuates allergen-induced pulmonary inflammatory responses in male ratsExpand

Osmotic responsiveness and cross talk involving oxytocin, but not vasopressin or amino acids, between the supraoptic nuclei in virgin and lactating rats
Lactation is associated with complex changes of the hypothalamo- neurohypophysial system, and oxytocin released within the hypothalamic supraoptic (SON) and paraventricular nuclei may serve as aExpand

Transient depletion of serotonin in the nervous system of Helisoma.
The present study shows that the drug 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine (5,7-diHT) can be used reliably to deplete the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT) from the nervous system of the snail Helisoma. TheExpand

Alcohol dependence and withdrawal in the rat. An effective means of induction and assessment.
Numerous problems have been associated with previous attempts to develop a suitable method for the induction and assessment of alcohol dependence and withdrawal syndrome in the rat. Using ourExpand
