Vasomotion has been studied on segments of rat mesenteric and femoral arteries perfused in vitro. We have investigated 1) the effect of perfusion flow on the characteristics of vasomotion and 2) the nature and patterns of vasomotion. We have found that perfusion flow is not a control parameter that contributes to the genesis of vasomotion but that it affects, in most cases only slightly, the frequency and amplitude of vasomotion. We have found evidence that vasomotion is low-dimensional chaotic… CONTINUE READING
