Inhibition of salt appetite in the rat following injection of tachykinins into the medial amygdala.

Abstract

The present study investigated the sensitivity of the medial region of the amygdala to the antinatriorexic action in the rat of the tachykinins eledoisin, substance P, neurokinin A and [Asp5,6, MePhe8] substance P(5-11) (also referred to as amino-senktide; NH2-SENK), which is a highly selective agonist for NK-3 receptors. The results obtained show that only… (More)
