Brain control of arterial blood pressure in man and in animals has been studied increasingly over the last few decades. Despite our knowledge about short term regulation (chemoreceptor and baroreceptor reflexes) there is much more uncertainty about the degree of involvement of brain mechanisms in long term control of blood pressure, and in hypertension. The last decade, a role of brain mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) has been outlined in animal experiments. Stimulation of brain MR by… CONTINUE READING
