In rats, secretion of vasopressin initiated by hemorrhage was completely abolished after muscimol-induced inhibition of neuronal function in the A1 region of the ventrolateral medulla oblongata. The A1 neurons are essential links in the central pathway to hypothalamic vasopressin-synthesizing neurons in this species.
