The vasopressinergic innervation of the ventral septal area (VSA) has been shown to be implicated in antipyresis. Because this system is less well developed in female rats, we hypothesized that female rats would display exaggerated febrile responses. We therefore examined the temperature responses of conscious and urethan-anesthetized rats of both sexes to centrally administered prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and correlated these responses with the release and action of endogenous arginine vasopressin… CONTINUE READING
