The present study was carried out to examine whether estrogen modulates the drinking response caused by activation of neural pathways from the subfornical organ (SFO) to the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) in the female rat. Microinjection of angiotensin II (ANG II) into the SFO elicited drinking in ovariectomized female rats that were treated with either propylene glycol (PG) vehicle or estradiol benzoate (EB). The amount of water intake induced by the ANG II injection was… CONTINUE READING
