The magnocellular oxytocin neurons of the hypothalamic supraoptic (SON) and paraventricular nuclei play an important role in the initiation and maintenance of parturition in the rat. As little is known about the neural inputs responsible for activating oxytocin neuron activity at this time, we used the technique of microdialysis to examine the profile of monoamine and excitatory amino acid neurotransmitter release within the SON before and during parturition. Microdialysis probes were implanted… CONTINUE READING
