In 55 anesthetized and paralyzed adult rabbits, 161 spontaneously active neurons which responded to electrical stimulation of A-fibers of the aortic nerve were found within the ventrolateral medulla (VLM). They were termed barosensory VLM neurons, since the aortic nerve A-fibers were considered to consist exclusively of afferents from arterial baroreceptors. Forty percent of barosensory VLM neurons tested (49/123) were activated antidromically by stimulation of the dorsolateral funiculus… CONTINUE READING
