Aversive effects of subcutaneously injected vasopressin in the rat: independence of the ascending dorsal noradrenergic bundle.

Abstract:

The unconditioned stimulus properties of subcutaneously administered arginine vasopressin (AVP) were examined using place and taste conditioning paradigms. Evidence for an aversive effect of the peptide was found, in general agreement with a previous report, although a high dose of AVP (10 micrograms) was required. Also investigated was the possible role of the dorsal noradrenergic bundle (DNAB) in conditioned taste aversion established by AVP. Although the DNAB has been proposed as one of th...
