Previous studies indicate that rats with lesions centered on the area postrema (AP) drink more saline and consume abnormally large amounts of water after treatment with subcutaneous isoproterenol (Iso) or angiotensin II. In addition, lesioned rats lose a significant amount of body weight immediately after surgery. Nonetheless, there are disparate reports on the effects of lesions of the AP on fluid intake and body weight. These reports suggest that the adjacent nucleus of the solitary tract… CONTINUE READING
