The endothelium-derived relaxing factor, probably nitric oxide (NO), is a potent vasodilator that regulates the vascular tone in several vascular beds, including the brain. We explored the possibility that NO might be of importance for the increase of cerebral blood flow (CBF) associated with activity of the well-defined neuronal circuits of the rat cerebellar cortex. Laser-Doppler flowmetry was used to measure increases of cerebellar blood flow evoked by trains of electrical stimulations of… CONTINUE READING
