GABAergic neurons in the caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM) are believed to mediate the sympathetic baroreceptor reflex by inhibiting presympathetic neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM). Accordingly, some CVLM neurons are activated by increased arterial pressure (AP; baro-activated), have activity strongly modulated by the AP pulse (pulse-modulated), and can be antidromically activated from the RVLM. This study examined whether baro-activated, pulse-modulated CVLM neurons are… CONTINUE READING
