Central nervous effects of CRF and angiotensin II on cardiac output in conscious rats.


Studies were performed to determine whether the central nervous system actions of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and angiotensin II (ANG II) on systemic arterial pressure are mediated, in part, through changes in cardiac output (CO). Changes in CO after intracerebroventricular administration of ANG II and CRF were assessed in conscious unrestrained… (More)
