Infusions of angiotensin II (AII) or carbachol (CBC) into the lateral ventricles of rats which had been depleted of sodium 4 h previously with either furosemide or polyethylene glycol produced significant changes in salt appetite and sodium and water balances relative to rats infused with saline vehicle. Infusions of AII enhanced the salt appetite and led to rapid retention of both sodium and water. Infusions of CBC abolished the salt appetite and consequently did not produce any increase in… CONTINUE READING
