There is increasing evidence that early life stressors may program blood pressure control mechanisms such that the risk for cardiovascular disease in later life is increased. In the present investigation, the effect of repeated restraint/heat stress during the two-week period immediately after weaning on baroreflex function was determined and the contribution of brain angiotensin II (ANG II) to the changes was assessed in young, conscious, freely moving Sprague Dawley rats. In rats two weeks… CONTINUE READING
