These data demonstrate a chain of synaptically connected neurons extending to the rat kidney through several levels of the neuraxis from the forebrain, and the lamina terminalis -- an area known to be involved in the regulation of body fluid homeostasis. The Bartha strain of pseudorabies virus was injected into the kidney of male Sprague-Dawley rats, resulting in retrograde infections in spinal cord segments (T1-T8), and successive infection in five autonomic 'premotor' areas of the brain, the… CONTINUE READING
