Conscious rats were given an intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of isotonic or hypertonic saline, and killed 10-240 min later. In the hypothalamus of hypertonic saline-injected rats, c-fos-mRNA positive cells were mainly restricted to the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei and to structures associated with the lamina terminalis of the third ventricle,(More)
1. The expression of c-fos mRNA in the rat hypothalamus was examined by in situ hybridization following systemic administration of cholecystokinin (CCK), a procedure known to activate magnocellular oxytocin neurons but not magnocellular vasopressin neurones. 2. Conscious male rats were given a single I.P. injection of 50 micrograms/kg CCK, c-fos mRNA signal(More)
1. Intravenous administration of cholecystokinin (CCK) results in a transient activation of oxytocin neurones in the rat, and hence to oxytocin secretion: this activation is followed by expression of c-fos mRNA and of Fos-like immunoreactivity (Fos-LI) in magnocellular oxytocin neurones. Fos-like immunoreactivity is also induced in the regions of the(More)
