Cerebral osmoregulation of renal sodium excretion--a response analogous to thirst and vasopressin release.


Studies in sheep have shown that renal excretion of sodium may be under osmoregulatory control. When sheep become dehydrated, or are infused intravenously with hypertonic saline, they increase renal Na excretion in addition to secreting vasopressin and developing a thirst. These natriuretic, antidiuretic, and dipsogenic responses to dehydration and… (More)
