Influence of gravity on cardiovascular reflexes from skeletal muscle receptors.


Skeletal muscles are important reflexogenic areas of the cardiovascular system. The afferent pathways of the reflex loops involve slow-conducting group III and group IV fibers that are excited by mechanical and chemical events in the muscle. The present paper reviews a series of experiments dealing with the question of whether those afferents are also… (More)
