Behavioral regulation of sodium balance Hamsters: No matter what concentration of sodium is offered, hamsters never prefer saline over water. After adx, hamsters do not change preference and most die. If you put saccharine in with the salt they drink plenty of the saccharine + NaCl and live. If given a choice: NaCl or saccharine? Then, the hamster drinks saccharine and dies. Why? Hamsters evolved in the desert Finding sodium not a physiological problem No sodium appetite has evolved!

Volume homeostasis Thirst is  triggered  by increased plasma  osmolality  (OVLT receptors) I.e  lose water & gastric  salt load  (hepatic Na +  receptors) i.e. take in salt &  decrease in blood volume/pressure  hypovolemia  (angiotensin II in SFO  triggers response). Thirst is  inhibited   by decreased  plasma  osmolality   (OVLT receptors)  i.e. take in water  and by increased  blood pressure  (result of  AngioII)

Volume homeostasis Hypovolemia  triggers not only  thirst , but also  salt appetite Blood volume is corrected only  by replacing  both water and  salt Drinking water  alleviates  thirst  (by reducing plasma  osmolality), but  triggers salt  appetite , whereas consuming  salt triggers subsequent thirst  (by increasing plasma  osmolality)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
