Whether neurally-mediated vasodilatation may contribute to exercise hyperemia has not been completely understood. Bülbring and Burn (1935) found for the first time the existence of sympathetic cholinergic nerve to skeletal muscle contributing to vasodilatation in animals. Blair et al. (1959) reported that atropine-sensitive vasodilatation in skeletal muscle appeared during arousal behavior or mental stress in humans. However, such sympathetic vasodilator mechanism for muscle vascular bed in… CONTINUE READING
