Abstract Investigation of the effects of osmotic and hypovolaemic stimuli on the pattern of subfornical organ (SFO) c- fos expression yielded three distinct distributions of activated neurons. Hypertonic saline induced c- fos expression in peripheral SFO only. PEG/water induced c- fos in the central core of SFO and PEG/saline induced c- fos in both the central and peripheral regions. Isotonic saline failed to induce SFO c- fos expression. These results are consistent with the notion of functional segregation within the SFO.
