The circumventricular organs of the brain have been implicated in the central regulation of the cardiovascular system. The area postrema, which is the only circumventricular organ in the hindbrain, has received less attention than the others, but recent studies suggest that it may play an important role in the regulation of the cardiovascular system. Studies in rats and rabbits indicate that angiotensin II (Ang II)-dependent hypertension is abolished by lesioning of the area postrema… CONTINUE READING
