Vasopressin (AVP) secretion and release are regulated by a number of central nervous system sites that receive peripheral signals from the osmoreceptors and baroreceptors. Aim of this paper is to review anatomical pathways and neurotransmitters involved as well as drugs affecting AVP secretion.

Keywords: Vasopressin, osmoreceptors, baroreceptors, circumventricular organs, osmolality, central nervous system, anatomical pathways, neurotransmitters, AVP secretion, hypothalamus.
