Multifactorial control of water and saline intake: Role of α2-adrenoceptors
Water and saline intake is controlled by several mechanisms activated during dehydration. Some mechanisms, such as the production of angiotensin II and unloading of cardiovascular receptors, activate both behaviors, while ...
Effects of the alpha antagonists and agonists injected into the lateral hypothalamus on the water and sodium intake induced by angiotensin II injection into the subfornical organ
The subfornical organ (SFO) and the lateral hypothalamus (LH) have been shown to be important for the central action of angiotensin II (ANG II) on water and salt regulation. Several anatomical findings have demonstrated ...
Clonidine and phenylephrine injected into the lateral preoptic area reduce water intake in dehydrated rats
(Elsevier B.V., 1993-09-01)
In the present study, we investigated the effect of phenylephrine and clonidine (α1- and α2-adrenoceptor agonists, respectively) injected into the lateral preoptic area (LPOA) on the water intake induced by water deprivation ...
Effects of the application of α1- and α2-adrenoceptor agonists and antagonists into the ventromedial hypothalamus on the sodium and potassium renal excretion
The effects of sodium and potassium excretion after intrahypothalamic administration of two α-adrenoceptor agonists and the effect of α-adrenoceptor antagonists were studied in groups of rats. Prazosin was equally effective ...
Role of the alfa1- and alfa2-adrenoceptors of the lateral hypothalamus in the dipsogenic response to central angiotensin II in rats
(Elsevier B.V., 1991-09-27)
The present experiments were conducted to investigate the role of the α1- and α2-adrenergic receptors of the lateral hypothalamus (LH) on the drinking response elicited by intracerebroventricular (i.c.v) injections of ...
Role of cholinergic and adrenergic pathways of the medial septal area in the control of water intake and renal excretion in rats
(Elsevier B.V., 1992-05-01)
In this study, we investigated an interaction between noradrenergic and cholinergic pathways of the medial septal area (MSA) on the control of water intake and urinary electrolyte excretion by means of injection of their ...
