Chemogenetics provides cell type-specific remote control of neuronal activity. Here, we describe the application of chemogenetics used to specifically activate oxytocin (OT) neurons as representatives of a unique class of neuroendocrine cells. We injected recombinant adeno-associated vectors, driving the stimulatory subunit hM3Dq of a modified human muscarinic receptor into the rat hypothalamus ...
