Reduced preabsorptive insulin response in aged rats: differential effects of amphetamine and arginine-vasopressin.


The experiments presented here have been designed to investigated whether the age-related attenuation of the vagal reactivity to emotional stressors and its modulation by amphetamine (Amph) or arginine-vasopressin (AVP) can be generalized for other physiological response patterns. We therefore studied the vagal control of the endocrine pancreas during food… (More)
