Cholecystokinin induces c-fos expression in hypothalamic oxytocinergic neurons projecting to the dorsal vagal complex.


Systemic administration of cholecystokinin (CCK) decreases gastric motility and stimulates pituitary secretion of oxytocin (OT). Although peripheral OT does not affect gastric function, increasing evidence suggests that central OT secretion acting within the dorsal vagal complex (DVC) can alter gastric motility. To evaluate whether systemically administered… (More)
