This investigation used an in vitro hypothalamic brain slice preparation and whole cell and perforated-patch recording to examine the response of magnocellular neurons in hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) to bath applications of vasopressin (VP; 100-500 nM). In 22/38 cells, responses were characterized by an increase in the frequency of bicuculline-sensitive inhibitory postsynaptic potentials or currents with no detectable influence on excitatory postsynaptic events. Perforated-patch… CONTINUE READING
