    Abstract

    Injection of l-glutamate into the caudal ventrolateral medulla of the rabbit caused a dose-dependent increase in plasma vasopressin. Activity of the A1 noradrenergic cells within the caudal ventrolateral medulla appears to excite the vasopressin-secreting neuroendocrine cells within the hypothalamus.
