Rats were tail suspended, keeping their forelimbs weight bearing for 14 days, and then allowed to recover for a short (6-h) or a long (24-h) period to assess the behavior of the sympathetic nervous system after weightless simulation. Sympathetic activity was determined by measuring norepinephrine (NE) turnover in the brain stem cell groups involved in central blood pressure control and in organs playing a key role in the cardiovascular regulation (heart and kidneys). The NE turnover was greatly… CONTINUE READING
