Cardiovascular effects of centrally perfused clonidine.

Earlier work has indicated that the systemic cardiovascular actions of clonidine might be mediated by caudal brainstem centers, especially the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS). This study sought to define the mode of clonidine action on the NTS more explicitly using the technique of push-pull perfusion on urethane-anesthetized rats. The NTS of… (More)
