Lesions in the central amygdala impair sodium intake induced by the blockade of the lateral parabrachial nucleus.


The blockade of the lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN) with the GABAergic receptor agonist muscimol induces strong hypertonic NaCl intake in satiated and normovolemic rats, whereas lesions of the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA) reduce sodium intake induced by different protocols. In the present study we investigated the effects of bilateral lesions… (More)
