Brain stem mechanisms in the control of arterial pressure.


Electrical stimulation of a circumscribed region within the rostral part of the ventrolateral medulla elicits a large increase in arterial pressure accompanied by intense regional vasoconstriction. Microinjection of glutamate has established that the vasomotor effects are due to excitation of cell bodies rather than axons of passage within the ventrolateral… (More)
