Changes in blood pressure and the electrocardiogram were studied before and after the stimulation of the hypothalamus (anterior, lateral, and posterior) and the reticular formation of the pons in anesthetized cats. The stimulation of the anterior hypothalamus produced a rise of blood pressure and usually bradycardia; tachycardia was rarely observed. Arrhythmias were not observed, and the electrocardiographic changes consisted only of slight ST elevation and deepening of the T waves. Stimulation… Expand
Effect of chronic stimulation of negative and positive emotiogenic hypothalamic centers on production of cardiac arrhythmias
TLDR
In animals subjected to stimulation of the ventromedial nuclei for 1–2 weeks, functional “weakness” of the cardiac pacemakers was found, as shown by an increase in poststimulation depression of automatic activity of thepacemakers and the appearance of Luciani's periods. Expand
ECG CHANGES AFTER CEREBRAL STIMULATION. I. ANOMALOUS ATRIOVENTRICULAR EXCITATION ELICITED BY ELECTRICAL STIMULATION OF THE MESENCEPHALIC RETICULAR FORMATION.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the WPW-like complexes observed in this study are mediated exclusively by the sympathetic division of the antonomic nervous system. Expand
Lateral hypothalamic area neurotransmission and neuromodulation of the specific cardiac effects of insular cortex stimulation
TLDR
It is suggested that the LHA contains an obligatory synapse mediating insular tachycardia and that glutamate is the likely neurotransmitter at this site, and may be effected by opiate kappa and NPY receptors. Expand
Experimental bigeminal arrhythmia in the dog.
TLDR
The experimental data do not provide a positive basis for classifying the abnormal complexes as ventricular pre-excitation or coupled late ventricular ectopic beats, and it appears that the site of initial ventricular activation in abnormal complexes is widely dispersed in this group of animals. Expand
Localization of central cardiovascular control mechanism in the brain stem of the monkey.
TLDR
A pressor response concomitant with cardioacceleration and cardio-augmentation could be elicited in the lateral hypothalamus, the tegmentum of the mesencephalon, and the dorsal and ventrolateral portions of the pons and medulla, which supports the location of a basic cardiovascular control mechanism in the medulla for maintenance of vasomotor and cardiac functions.

The Influence of Electrical Stimulation of Brain on Cardiac Function
TLDR
In the thalamus group, more than 20% rise of the blood pressure was seen in 53% of the cases and it was seen frequently in the midline and medial nuclei groups and in these groups theBlood pressure rose significantly in the majority of the Cases. Expand
Cardiac dysrhythmias in the conscious dog after surgically induced autonomic imbalance.
TLDR
Total denervation of the canine heart, sparing the ventrolateral cardiac nerve, produced a long-term model in which only these portions of the heart retained their sympathetic innervation, and exercise-induced dysrhythmias gradually disappeared with time. Expand
Neurogenic Myocardial Arrhythmias in Experimental Focal Epilepsy
TLDR
It is suggested that during paroxysmal hypothalamic activity the observed cardiac arrhythmias and the hemodynamic modifications were neurogenic in origin. Expand
Role of catecholamines in centrogenic cardiac arrhythmia induced by aconitine
TLDR
The neural supply to the heart, therefore, does not seem to be the major pathway concerned in the genesis of the centrogenic cardiovascular effects of aconitine, and the centrally evoked release of endogenous catecholamines from the adrenal glands was responsible for the ac onitine‐induced arrhythmia.

STIMULATION OF FOREL'S FIELD DURING STEREOTAXIC OPERATIONS IN THE HUMAN BRAIN.
TLDR
The complexity of Forel's field H that contains various systems of different physiologic significance is shown, which may be due partly to stimulation of pallidofugal fibers and partly to cerebello-rubro-thalamo-pallidal fibers that pass through, or synapse in, the field H. Expand

Bioelectrical changes of the heart cycle induced by stimulation of diencephalic regions.
TLDR
Diencephalic influences upon the heart cycle are revealed by the analysis of the electrocardiogram under stimulation of hypothalamic and subthalamic areas, and effects of sympathetic activation, such as tachycardia and increase in the amplitudes of the QRS complex and the T wave, are much more commonly and consistently seen than those resulting from activation of the parasympathetic system.

The Reticular Formation
TLDR
Research into the nature and function of the reticular formation of the brain stem rapidly gained momentum, and continues apace, and it is becoming increasingly clear that the concept of areticular formation as a single entity is wrong. Expand

TLDR
Electrophysiologic observations and continued experimental research have lent support to the assumption that the reticular activating system of the brain stem is "made up of a series of ascending relays coursing forward from the Reticular formation of the monkey". Expand
