Baroreceptor input plays a critical role in body fluid balance and the endocrine response to NaCl consumption [25]. Experiments were performed to characterize the alterations in salt intake that are seen after baroreceptor denervation. Using chronically baroreceptor denervated (SAD) or control (CON) male Sprague-Dawley rats, we determined: 1) concentration-dependent consumption of NaCl, 2) time course of saline intake, 3) effect of food access on saline intake, 4) intake of sucrose vs. saline… CONTINUE READING
