Autonomic responses may underlie associations among anxiety, vestibular dysfunction, and unexplained syncope. Mental stress (MS), an anxiety-inducing stimulus, causes forearm vasodilation, whereas the vestibulosympathetic reflex (VSR) causes forearm vasoconstriction. The purpose of this study was to examine the combined effects of mental and vestibular stimulation on neurovascular control in the forearm. Heart rate, arterial pressure (Finapres), and forearm blood flow (Doppler) were measured in… CONTINUE READING
