The current investigation tested the hypothesis that inhibition of L-glutamate uptake in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVL) enhances the baroreceptor-mediated heart rate responses. In conscious freely moving rats, unilateral microinjection of the L-glutamate uptake blocker p-chloromercuriphenylsalfonic acid (PCMS, 0.1 nmol) elicited a 45% increase in… CONTINUE READING
