Effect of hypertonic saline on rat hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus parvocellular neurons in vitro.

Abstract

The effects of hypertonic saline on hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) parvocellular neurons were examined using whole-cell patch-clamp technique. Under current-clamp, 50% (41/82) of parvocellular neurons were depolarized than the predicted values by hypertonic saline, and associated with increasing action potential frequency. Under voltage-clamp… (More)
