Abstract

Blood vessels in the anterior hypothalamus are accompanied by bunches of delicate catecholamine fibers. Capsaicin treatment (deterioration of the central thermoregulation) results in depletion of catecholamines from these fibers, not affecting any other adrenergic and dopaminergic systems in this area. The perivascular catecholamine nerve bunches are tentatively identified with central thermodetectors.
