Prolactin-releasing peptide (PrRP) was originally thought to participate in the control of adenohypophyseal prolactin secretion, but its predominant expression in a subset of medullary noradrenergic neurons is more in line with roles in interoceptive and/or somatosensory information processing. To better define functional contexts for this peptide system, immuno- and hybridization histochemical methods were used to monitor the capacity of PrRP neurons to display activational responses to… CONTINUE READING
