The existence of a brain renin-angiotensin system (RAS) as one of various tissue RASs is now firmly established. Angiotensin-containing pathways within brain areas involved in central blood pressure regulation have been described. Evidence from biochemical, neurophysiologic, pharmacologic, and most recently, molecular genetic studies indicate that the brain… (More)
