The medial preoptic nucleus of the hypothalamus modulates activity of nitric oxide sensitive neurons in the midbrain periaqueductal gray.

Abstract

Stimulation of the medial preoptic nucleus of the hypothalamus (MPO) has been shown to produce decreases in mean arterial pressure (MAP) by a pathway involving the periaqueductal gray region of the midbrain (PAG). Previous studies have shown that the injection of nitric oxide (NO) donating compounds into the dorsal PAG also decreases MAP, while the… (More)
