BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The effect of antihypertensive drugs on autonomic neural control of the cerebral circulation remains unclear. This study was designed to compare middle cerebral artery mean blood velocity responses to acute hypotension with and without alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor blockade (Prazosin) in young, healthy humans. METHODS Acute hypotension was induced nonpharmacologically in 6 healthy subjects (mean+/-SE; 28+/-2 years) by releasing bilateral thigh cuffs after 9 minutes of… CONTINUE READING
