Stimulation of neurons in rat ARC inhibits gastric acid secretion via hypothalamic CRF1/2- and NPY-Y1 receptors.


Neuropeptide Y (NPY) neuronal projections from the arcuate nucleus (ARC) have been proposed to target corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF)-positive neurons in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) as part of the ARC-PVN axis. The existence of a positive feedback loop involving CRF receptors in the PVN has been suggested. Exogenous NPY and CRF in the PVN have… (More)
