Localization of oxytocin and vasopressin binding sites has so far been studied in the rat brain by means of film autoradiographs. The availability of selective iodinated ligands with high specific activity allowed us to develop the histoautoradiographical technique and to reinvestigate at the microscopic scale the distribution of these sites in the hypothalamus. Most oxytocin binding sites were localized in delimited nuclei, e.g., the medial preoptic, the ventromedial, the ventral premammillary… CONTINUE READING
