Levi et al. show that rats subjected to two distinct models of salt-dependent hypertension feature an increase in the osmoresponsiveness of neurosecretory neurons that release the antidiuretic and vasoconstrictor hormone vasopressin. However, this common effect is associated with different cellular and synaptic changes that characterize each of the models.
