The kidney is important in the long-term regulation of blood pressure and sodium homeostasis. Stimulation of ETB receptors in the kidney increases sodium excretion, in part, by decreasing sodium transport in the medullary thick ascending limb of Henle and in collecting duct. However, the role of ETB receptor on Na(+)-K(+) ATPase activity in renal proximal(More)
This study compares the sympathetic nervous system response to graded exercise in normotensive and essential hypertensive subjects with and without beta-adrenergic blockade. Blood pressure (BP), heart rate, and plasma norepinephrine (NE), epinephrine (E), and dopamine (DA) were measured just before starting the exercise (Pre-Ex), in the submaximal exercise(More)
This study quantified perception and reorientation ability after passive horizontal rotations in thirteen children with cerebral palsy (CP). They stood barefoot on a platform in front of a fixed reference point (static posture task, SPT) and were then blindfolded and passively rotated with six velocity profiles (maximum angular velocity: 57°/s; rotation(More)
