Sympathoexcitatory neurons of the rostral ventrolateral medulla are tonically active and required for maintenance of resting levels of arterial pressure. They are also selectively excited by hypoxia and responsible for the associated sympathoexcitation. Since electrical or chemical stimulation of RVL will increase regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) independently of changes in regional cerebral glucose utilization (rCGU) we investigated whether the RVL was also required to maintain resting… CONTINUE READING
