Cerebral circulation and histamine: 2. Responses of pial veins and arterioles to receptor agonists.

Abstract

H2-receptors predominantly mediate pial arteriolar dilatation in response to histamine, but the reaction of pial veins to histamine has not been clearly identified. In anesthetized cats, we examined responses of pial veins and arterioles to perivascular microapplication of histamine and specific histamine H1 and H2 receptor agonists. Arterioles were very… (More)
