The neurones in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei (SON and PVN) which secrete vasopressin are separate from those which secrete oxytocin and are distributed in different parts of the nuclei. They may be distinguished electrophysiologically by a characteristic phasic pattern of firing. A selective afferent neural input to these neurones would provide a mechanism for the release of vasopressin independently of oxytocin in response to appropriate physiological stimuli.
