    The time course of the release of vasopressin-binding (nicotine-stimulated) and oxytocin-binding (estrogen-stimulated) neurophysins (NPs) into the rat pituitary and blood serum has been studied during the convulsive phase of hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) and the postconvulsive period (PCP). The...

    Neuropeptides that are released from dendrites, such as oxytocin and vasopressin, function as autocrine or paracrine signals at their site of origin, but can also act at distant brain targets to evoke long-lasting changes in behaviour. Oxytocin, for instance, has profound effects on social...

    Many peptides, when released as chemical messengers within the brain, have powerful influences on complex behaviours. Most strikingly, vasopressin and oxytocin, once thought of as circulating hormones whose actions were confined to peripheral organs, are now known to be released in the brain,...

    This article indicates that oxytocin (OT) and arginine vasopressin (AVP) are important regulators of epididymal contractility and sperm transport. A study was made to examine the effects of OT and AVP on contractions of the rat caputepididymis, as well as the hormonal effects on epididymal...

    Organotypic slice cultures have been developed as an alternative to acute brain slices because the neuronal viability and synaptic connectivity in these cultures can be preserved well for a prolonged period of time. This study evaluated a stationary organotypic slice culture developed for the...

    Background: Oxytocin is released in response to a meal. Further, mRNA for oxytocin and its receptor have been found throughout the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The aim of this study was therefore to examine whether oxytocin, or the receptor antagonist atosiban, influence the gastric emptying....
