The lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN), a structure in the rat that lies dorsolateral to the superior cerebellar peduncle, is an important inhibitory area involved in the control of water and sodium intake. A potent substance that cause thirst and sodium appetite is a neuropeptide angiotensin II (ANG II), when production is made by hypovolemia and hypotension. The main action of ANG II...
The lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN), a pontine structure is an important area involved in the control of water and sodium intake. Previous studies showed inhibitory serotonergic and cholecystokinergic mechanisms in the LPBN in the control of water and sodium intake. Injections of methysergide, a serotonergic receptor antagonist or proglumide, a cholecystokinin antagonist, into the L...
