1. The question of whether neurones in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus have an excitatory influence on reticulo-spinal vasomotor neurones of the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVL) has been addressed in this study using anaesthetized rats. 2. Extracellular microelectrode recordings were made from sixty vasomotor neurones in the RVL, identified by their cardiac cycle-related probability of discharge, by the decrease in activity in response to an increase in arterial blood… CONTINUE READING
