We aimed to explore whether and how the pineal influences the adrenal medulla, the area postrema and the brain water content; and is influenced by sham pinealectomy (SPX) in its structures and melatonin secretion. Quantitative morphological methods were mainly used in rats and golden hamsters. Experimental results showed: (1) Pineal effects on the A cell(More)
Unique effects of sham-pinealectomy [intracranial surgery (IS)] which include reduced functional activity of the adrenal gland and suppressed circadian rhythms of the adrenal medulla, and which are reversed by pinealectomy, have been reported in rodents. To clarify the mechanisms, we investigated whether or what changes occur in pineal functional activity(More)
