Carotid sinus reflex interactions were studied in 10 dogs anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium. The right and left carotid sinus regions were isolated and perfused at controlled pressures. Pressure in the right and left carotid sinuses were independently varied, and the resulting steady-state reflex changes in arterial pressure, heart rate, respiratory frequency, tidal volume, and total ventilation were measured. Reflex changes when carotid sinus pressure was changed on one side were strongly… Expand
Left ventricular reflex control of venous return and systemic vascular capacitance in dogs.
It is suggested that left ventricular mechanoreceptors and carotid baroreceptor contribute importantly to the control of venous return and vascular capacitance. Expand
Functional asymmetry in carotid sinus cardiac reflexes in humans
It is suggested that the functional asymmetry was related to differences in right/left-sided cardiac innervation as well as to central ipsilateral projection of the carotid baroreceptor afferents to the nuclei tractus solitarii. Expand
Acute carotid baroreflex resetting in conscious dogs.
Analysis of the present experimental data indicates that when the cardiovascular system is exposed to a short‐term hyper‐ or hypotension, the baroreflex is capable of correcting the baseline arterial pressure while preserving its ability to buffer transient disturbances as a result of partial resetting.

Acute baroreflex resetting: differential control of pressure and nerve activity.
This study evaluated acute resetting of carotid baroreflex control of arterial blood pressure and renal or thoracic sympathetic nerve activity in thiopental-anesthetized mongrel dogs with the use ofExpand
A Central Mechanism of Acute Baroreflex Resetting in the Conscious Dog
Results show that conditioning of the ipsilateral carotid sinus baroreceptors can induce acute baroreflex resetting from the contralateral, unconditioned carotids sinus, and strongly suggests that the conditioning pressure can cause barore Flex resetting by a central mechanism alone without the need for the receptors themselves to be reset.

Summation of dynamic transfer characteristics of left and right carotid sinus baroreflexes in rabbits.
It is concluded that summation of the dynamic transfer characteristics of the bilateral carotid sinus baroreflexes around the physiological operating pressure approximates simple addition. Expand
Effects of Unilateral and Bilateral Carotid Baroreflex Stimulation on Cardiac and Neural Sympathetic Discharge Oscillatory Patterns
RightCarotid baroreflex loading was as efficient as bilateral stimulation and more effective than left carotid suction in modulating R-R and SAP variability. Expand
Acute baroreflex resetting and its control of blood pressure in an open loop model
The data indicates that the baroreflex in capable of monitoring the absolute level of blood pressure during acute resetting in addition to buffering transient disturbances in arterial pressure. Expand
Arterial Baroreceptor Regulation of Peripheral Resistance and of Cardiac Performance
The arterial baroreceptor reflexes act to maintain arterial pressure constant at a set point or operating point, and loss of these reflexes impairs or may even destroy the ability to respond properly to some external stimuli or to disease states. Expand
Fear processing is differentially affected by lateralized stimulation of carotid baroreceptors
This study provides unique evidence for lateralized viscerosensory effects on brain systems supporting emotional processing by showing that both right and left carotid stimulation (CS) influenced brain activity within opercular regions, although a stronger activation was observed within left insula during right stimulation compared to left stimulation.
