To investigate the distribution of vasorpressin and
oxytocin neurons, tissue sections of the hypothalamus
were examined by irnmunoperoxidase technique and
light microscopy using monoclonal antibodies to ox~
ytocin and arginine vasopressin
Our immunocytochemical investigations reveal both
vasopressin and oxytocin neurons in the supraoptic
nucleus(SON) , the paraventricular nucleus(PVN) ,
the arcuate nucleus, the suprachiasmatic nucleus, the
accessory supraoptic nucleus, the perifornical area and
the periventricular area. Perikarya of these two types
neurons did not show distinct morphological differences
at the level of light microscopy. Among these
nuclei, they were mainly distributed in the SON and
PVN, and the ratio of the number of vasopressin
neurons to that of oxytocin neurons was 6 : 5 in the
SON, and 1 : 2 in the PVN. So the SON and PVN
are indistinguishable in that both cell types are present
in both nuclei, but impressively vasopressin neurons
were found only in the posterior half of the
