Recent work demonstrates extensive extra-hypothalamic vasopressinergic projections from the SON and PVN. Of particular importance are projections to the cardiovascular medullary centres. Conversely, the SON and PVN receive reciprocal catecholaminergic innervation from autonomic medullary centres. Vasopressin should now be regarded as a peptide hormone with important… CONTINUE READING
