Vasotocin acts as a dipsogen in ducks at concentrations stimulating subfornical organ neurons in vitro


The effects of systemic infusions of the avian antidiuretic hormone arginine vasotocin on water intake of domestic ducks were investigated under steady conditions of water balance in which angiotensin II was effective as a dipsogen. The study proceeded from the consistent stimulatory effect of arginine vasotocin on angiotensin II-responsive neurons found in… (More)
