The drinking response to angiotensin injections is copious, rapid, repeatable within the same test session, and stable over months of testing in the same animal.3. The response is motivationally potent and specific. After injection the animals move directly to the source of water and drink. There is typically no preliminary hyperactivity or… CONTINUE READING
