Thermal, osmotic and chemical modulation of neural activity in the paraventricular nucleus: in vitro studies.


To investigate the functions of the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) which plays an important role as an integration site for the neuroendocrine and autonomic nervous systems, the firing activity of PVN neurons was recorded from hypothalamic slice preparations during thermal, osmotic and chemical stimulation. Neurons responded to environmental factors such as… (More)
