Sensitivity to Dipsogenic Peptides of Pigeons Bearing Lesions Directed to the Subfornical Organ (SFO)
Part of the
NATO ASI Series
book series (NSSA, volume 105)
The tachykinins eledoisin and physalaemin, as well as the bombesin peptides litorin, ranatensin and bombesin itself, exert in the pigeon a powerful dipsogenic effect which is similar, as far as drinking behaviour, time course and dose-response relationship are concerned, to that evoked by angiotensin II (Ang II)1–5.
