The ultrastructural features of paraventricular (PVN) and supraoptic (SON) neurons and of their axons were studied in lactating and dehydrated rats. Under both conditions of stimulation, the PVN and SON neurons and their axons enlarge. The protein synthesizing apparatus of the neurons becomes activated, but the number of neurosecretory granules (NSG) is decreased. No differences are seen between the PVN and SON neurons during lactation or dehydration. The similarity and simultaneity of the… CONTINUE READING
