Changes in NADPH diaphorase activity in forebrain structures of the laminae terminalis after chronic dehydration.

The effect of 3-day chronic dehydration on nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase (NADPH-diaphorase) histochemical staining in forebrain circumventricular structures was investigated in the rat. Increased number and/or intensity of staining of NADPH-diaphorase positive neurons was observed in subfornical organ, organum vasculosum of the… CONTINUE READING
