Developmental changes in the reflex control of osmotic pressure

Experiments on puppies aged from 1 to 60 days showed that the oliguric response to the administration of hypertonic sodium chloride solution into the portal vein occurs at the same time that sensitivity to pituitrin develops. Evidently the reaction is brought about by the antidiuretic hormone whose liberation is stimulated by the hepatic osmoreceptor reflex. In certain cases the reflex is developed without the participation of the hormone, apparently through the action of the efferent renal nerves.
