We made extracellular recordings from 107 spontaneously active neurons in the caudal ventrolateral medulla, after identifying the cells by antidromically activating them from the rostral ventrolateral medulla, in urethane-anesthetized rabbits. We tested the response of these neurons to inputs from baroreceptors and chemoreceptors. The median conduction velocity for antidromically activated neurons was 0.84 m/s. Raising blood pressure with intravenous noradrenaline excited 22% of 96 neurons… CONTINUE READING
