gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) synapses are an important feature of sympathetic circuits in the spinal cord. The possibility that these spinal synapses participate in the reduction of sympathetic activity resulting from arterial baroreceptor activation was tested. For this purpose baroreceptors were stimulated by a rapid rise in blood pressure induced by intravenous phenylephrine, and the effect of this on a spinally evoked excitatory response in a renal sympathetic nerve was examined before… CONTINUE READING
