Monosynaptic connection from caudal to rostral ventrolateral medulla in the baroreceptor reflex pathway
Results provide evidence for the existence of an excitatory projection from the NTS to the CVLM which, in turn, projects monosynaptically to sympathoexcitatory neurons in the RVLM. Expand
Parabrachial units responding to stimulation of buffer nerves and forebrain in the cat.
An important role for PB-KF in mediating ascending and descending cardiovascular and respiratory control signals is suggested. Expand
Horseradish peroxidase study of brain stem projections of carotid sinus and aortic depressor nerves in the cat.
Data demonstrate that different regions of the solitary complex receive direct inputs from either one or both buffer nerves, suggesting a degree of separation of central pathways carrying CSN and ADN afferent information. Expand
Distribution and morphology of vasopressin‐, neurophysin II‐, and oxytocin‐immunoreactive cell bodies in the forebrain of the cat
Several forebrain areas were observed to contain only AVP‐IR perikarya: the suprachiasmatic nucleus (Sc), the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, and the region of the substantia innominata and ventral globus pallidus (SI/GP). Expand
Neurons in rostral VLM are inhibited by chemical stimulation of caudal VLM in rats.
Results provide direct evidence for the existence of an inhibitory pathway from neurons located in the CVLM to cardiovascular neurons in the RVLM. Expand
Role of paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei in central cardiovascular regulation in the cat.
Results demonstrate that stimulation of the PAH and SON elicit cardiovascular responses due to reciprocal changes in activity of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and that these structures maintain a tonic inhibitory influence on the heart rate component of the CSN reflex. Expand
Central projections of afferent renal fibers in the rat: an anterograde transport study of horseradish peroxidase.
Data show that ARN enter the spinal cord through several DRG and provide the first anatomical demonstration of central sites of termination of ARN, which are likely to becentral sites of integration of reno-renal and visceral reflexes. Expand
Lateral reticular nucleus: a site of somatic and cardiovascular integration in the cat.
Segmental distribution of peptide‐like immunoreactivity in cell bodies of the thoracolumbar sympathetic nuclei of the cat
The results suggest that the innervation of visceral organs is not obviously peptide‐specific, although some organs may be innervated by a greater proportion of SPN containing one of these peptides. Expand
Expression of c-fos protein in rat brain after electrical stimulation of the aortic depressor nerve
Results define central pathways involved in mediating the baroreceptor reflex as well as moderate amounts of label were present in the supraoptic nucleus and periventricular hypothalamus bilaterally in control animals. Expand
