The nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) is the primary site of visceral afferents to the central nervous system. In the present study, we investigated the effects of lesions in the commissural portion of the NTS (commNTS) on the activity of vasopressinergic neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular (PVN) and supraoptic (SON) nuclei, plasma vasopressin,(More)
Peripheral injection of pilocarpine, a cholinergic muscarinic agonist, induces salivation, water intake and hypertension. The medial septal area (MSA) is involved in cardiovascular control and fluid-electrolyte balance. Therefore, the effects of lesions or muscarinic cholinergic blockade in the MSA on the salivation, water intake and pressor responses(More)
Pilocarpine (cholinergic muscarinic agonist) injected peripherally may act centrally to produce pressor responses; in the present study, using c-fos immunoreactive expression, we investigated the forebrain and brainstem areas activated by pressor doses of intravenous (i.v.) pilocarpine. In addition, the importance of vasopressin secretion and/or sympathetic(More)
