Blood flow control reflects dynamic, integrated changes in the diameter of vessels that comprise resistance networks. Vasoconstriction and vasodilation can travel rapidly along the vessel wall via the conduction of electrical signals between endothelial and/or smooth muscle cells through gap junctions. Within the hamster cheek pouch, these conducted responses reflect complementary mechanisms for co-ordinating both increases and decreases in arteriolar diameter. In the hamster retractor muscle… CONTINUE READING
