Pressure-dependent changes in afferent activity in the aortic and the sinus nerves were studied in 17 anesthetized dogs that were artificially ventilated with oxygen. Systemic arterial blood pressure was varied either continuously or in steps over the range of mean aortic blood pressure from 220 to 50 mm Hg with a pressurized reservoir connected to the abdominal aorta. Multifiber preparations from 20 aortic and 8 sinus nerves were used, and stimulusresponse curves were defined by measuring the… CONTINUE READING
