The effect of arginine vasopressin (AVP) on membrane potential of neurons from dorsal root ganglion (DRG) was examined in the rat by means of intracellular recording technique. The results showed that (1) AVP induced hyperpolarization in the membrane of most DRG neurons. (2) The membrane conductance of the DRG neurons increased by 19.32% following(More)
The study was undertaken to find whether microinjection of vasopressin (AVP) into the rostral ventrolateral medulla (rVLM) affects blood pressure (BP) and blood viscosity in rats and to analyze the effects of AVP-ergic mechanism in the rVLM on stress-induced hyperviscosity of rats. The results are as follows. (1) Microinjection of AVP into the rostral(More)
