Acute sodium depletion by furosemide induces a robust salt appetite in the rat which is satiated rapidly by ingestion of sodium chloride (salt) solutions. To identify neuronal populations activated by sodium depletion and by salt intake, we quantified c-fos-like immunoreactivity (c-FLI) in the subfornical organ (SFO) and nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) after sodium depletion and at time intervals from 30 min to 12 h after 1 h of access to 0.3 M NaCl. Rats drank 10+/-1.6 mL over 1 h, with… CONTINUE READING
