  • Immunocytochemical studies in normal rats show an association between oxytocin (OT) neurons and cerebral blood vessels. This is supported by the finding of neurophysin (NP) immunoreactivity in blood vessels and piaarachnoid tissue of rats with hereditary vasopressin (VP) and VP-NP deficiency. OT and OT-NP fibers were visualized in pia-arachnoid and blood vessels at the base of the brain and, to a lesser extent, over the dorsal surface. OT constricts human basilar artery with a threshold… CONTINUE READING
