Simultaneous release of both oxytocin and vasopressin was evoked by electrically stimulating the isolated neural lobe. Morphine inhibited the electrically evoked release of both oxytocin and vasopressin, but whereas the opiate antagonist naloxone reversed the suppression of oxytocin release it was without effect against the opiate block of vasopressin secretion. Thus, although the secretion of both neurohypophysial hormones can be suppressed by opiates, the mechanisms may involve different… CONTINUE READING
