This experiment quantified the initial disruption and subsequent adaptation of the blood pressure (BP)-heart rate (HR) relationship after spinal cord transection (SCT). BP and HR were recorded for 4 h via an implanted catheter in neurally intact, unanesthetized rats. The animals were then anesthetized, and their spinal cords were severed at T(1)-T(2) (n =(More)
We recorded arterial pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) in type-1 diabetic rats vs. controls for >6 months. Diabetic rats (DIAB) were maintained on insulin from the day glucose >250 mg/dl ("Day 0"). Weight was similar between groups until ~3 weeks before Day 0 when the weight in DIAB transiently lagged the controls (CONT); this difference was maintained(More)
This study quantified the effect of interrupting the descending input to the sympathetic preganglionic neurons upon the dynamic behavior of arterial blood pressure (BP) in the unanesthetized rat. BP was recorded for .4 hour intervals in six rats in the neurally intact state and in the same animals following complete spinal cord transection (SCT) between T4(More)
This study quantified the effect of interrupting the descending input to the sympathetic preganglionic neurons on the dynamic behavior of arterial blood pressure (BP) in the unanesthetized rat. BP was recorded for approximately 4-h intervals in six rats in the neurally intact state and in the same animals after complete spinal cord transection (SCT) between(More)
Atomoxetine is a central norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. We tested the effects of atomoxetine upon the heart rate (HR) and mean arterial blood pressure (mBP) response to aversive conditioning. In Protocol 1 the mBP and HR responses to a stress (15s tone followed by shock) were tested in 8(More)
