The cardiovascular and thermoregulatory effects of intrahypothalamically (preoptic/anterior hypothalamus) and intravenously injected arginine vasotocin (AVT) and [Val5]angiotensin II (ANG II) were measured at 2 degrees C in the pigeon (Columba livia). In addition, the effects of intrahypothalamic and intravenous injections of AVT on respiratory rates were measured at 10-15 degrees C. Intrahypothalamic and intravenous AVT (500 ng and 20 micrograms/kg, respectively) reduced shivering and body… CONTINUE READING
