Phasic bursting by magnocellular neuroendocrine cells (MNCs) in the mammalian supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei (SON and PVN) consists of successive periods of action potentials and inactivity. It has previously been correlated with increased release of vasopressin from the neurohypophysis. In the present studies we investigated the neuronal mechanisms underlying this firing pattern. Using coronal slices of rat hypothalamus, we recorded intracellularly from neurons that are considered to be… CONTINUE READING
