Several lines of evidence implicate the median preoptic nucleus (MnPO) as a downstream site of activation following binding of angiotensin II (ANG II) at the subfornical organ and organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis. We have shown previously that electrolytic lesion of the MnPO attenuated the increased blood pressure response to chronic intravenous… CONTINUE READING
