Extracellular single unit activity was recorded from 73 neurones in the median preoptic nucleus (MnPO), identified by antidromic activation as projecting to the supraoptic nucleus (SON) area in urethane-anaesthetized male rats. Thirteen of 73 identified MnPO neurones were silent, and 44 of 60 spontaneously active MnPO neurones were tested for their responses to electrical stimulation of the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS). The cells were divided into 4 groups according to their responses… CONTINUE READING
