Role of Antidiuretic Hormone in Volume Regulation
Recent theories on integration between osmotic and volume regulation places the antidiuretic hormone (ADH) in a central position. In this paper we outline first the concepts of osmotic and volume regulation in higher vertebrates, second we describe our own experiments which test a crucial consequence of the hypothesis stated most clearly by Gauer5.
