1. The expression of c-fos mRNA in the rat hypothalamus was examined by in situ hybridization following systemic administration of cholecystokinin (CCK), a procedure known to activate magnocellular oxytocin neurons but not magnocellular vasopressin neurones. 2. Conscious male rats were given a single I.P. injection of 50 micrograms/kg CCK, c-fos mRNA signal was apparent in the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei in rats killed 10 min after injection but not in uninjected or saline-(vehicle… CONTINUE READING
