1. The purpose of these experiments was to use radiolabelled microspheres to measure blood flow distribution within the brain, and in particular to areas associated with motor function, maintenance of equilibrium, cardiorespiratory control, vision, hearing and smell, at rest and during exercise in miniature swine. Exercise consisted of steady-state treadmill running at intensities eliciting 70 and 100 % maximal oxygen consumption (V(O(2),max)). 2. Mean arterial pressure was elevated by 17 and… CONTINUE READING

Conversely , blood flow to regions related to hearing ( cochlear nuclei , inferior colliculi and temporal cortex ) and smell ( olfactory bulbs and rhinencephalon ) were unaltered by exercise and associated with increases in vascular resistance .
