Vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OXT) were measured by radioimmunoassay in push-pull perfusates and tissue samples of various brain areas, plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of male rats in response to osmotic stimulation. Hypertonic saline caused a significant rise in plasma AVP and OXT and different changes in peptide contents, in the septum and hippocampus at 30 and 60 min after intraperitoneal injection. Push-pull perfusion (20 microliters artificial CSF/min, 30-min periods) of the septum… CONTINUE READING
