Abstract

Vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone) is the primary regulator of the osmolality and volume of the extracellular fluid. Extracellular fluid osmolality in turn is one of the primary regulators of vasopressin release. Although this basic control system has been accepted for 35 years, areas of controversy have existed relative to the location and characteristics of the mechanisms responsible for osmotic regulation of vasopressin release. In this article the prominent features of these controversies will be discussed, and the compelling evidence in favor of a complex osmoreceptive system with multiple components will be presented.
