ENaC-expressing neurons in the sensory circumventricular organs become c-Fos activated following systemic sodium changes.

Abstract

The sensory circumventricular organs (CVOs) are specialized collections of neurons and glia that lie in the midline of the third and fourth ventricles of the brain, lack a blood-brain barrier, and function as chemosensors, sampling both the cerebrospinal fluid and plasma.
