Cardiovascular changes occur during mental stress and in certain types of mood disorders. The neural basis for this phenomenon is unknown but it may be dependent on CNS neurons that provide branched projections to affective processing regions of the brain, such as the medial prefrontal cortex, and to the sympathetic outflow system. Because these putative neurons may be connected to these two target sites by chains of neurons, we performed double virus transneuronal tracing experiments and show… CONTINUE READING
