Blood pressure and heart rate were monitored during discrete injections of bradykinin (5 nmol; 100-300 nl) in the hypothalamus and preoptic area of halothane anesthetized rats. In the paraventricular nucleus, bradykinin produced bradycardia without effecting blood pressure. The decrease in heart rate was abolished by pretreatment with methylatropine (IP… CONTINUE READING
