Functional neuroanatomy of the parvocellular vasopressinergic system: transcriptional responses to stress and glucocorticoid feedback.


This chapter summarizes the regulation of vasopressin (VP) transcription within the parvocellular neurosecretory cells of the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus in vivo, with special reference to stress-response and glucocorticoid feedback. VP is commonly held as the first and the most potent among the co-secretagogues that act synergistically with… (More)
