1. The activity of 372 neurones, located within or close to the hypothalamic depressor area, was recorded on raising the pressure within a vascularly isolated carotid sinus.2. When the intrasinusal pressure was raised abruptly to 200 mm Hg the activity of fifteen neurones was enhanced and of six inhibited.3. The neurones exhibiting excitation on baroreceptor afferent stimulation were broadly divisible into two groups. Nine neurones responded with a marked increase in discharge frequency, the… CONTINUE READING
