The nucleus tractus solitarius/dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve (NTS/DMV) area was perfused by the push-pull perfusion technique in anesthetized rats, and perfusates were assayed for arginine vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OXT) immunoreactivity. As compared with controls, electrical stimulation of the ipsilateral paraventricular nucleus (PVN) resulted in increased amounts of both AVP (approximately 5-fold) and OXT (approximately 10-fold, P less than 0.05 each) in the perfusates.
