We investigated the local and remote vascular changes evoked by activation of the cerebellar parallel fibers (PFs). The PFs were stimulated (25-150 microA, 30 Hz) in halothane-anesthetized rats equipped with a cranial window. The changes in arteriolar and venular diameter produced by PF stimulation were measured with the use of a videomicroscopy system. Cerebellar blood flow (BFcrb) was monitored by laser Doppler flowmetry and the field potentials evoked by PF stimulation were recorded with the…

Nitric oxide is the predominant mediator of cerebellar hyperemia during somatosensory activation in rats.

It is concluded that crus II activation by somatosensory stimuli produces localized increases in local neural activity and BFcrb that are mediated by activation of glutamate receptors and NO, underscore the unique role of NO in the mechanisms of synaptic function and blood flow regulation in cerebellum.

The present findings provide further evidence of a strong functional reactivity of cerebral capillaries and underscore the importance of changes in the capillary geometry in the hemodynamic response to neuronal activation.

Stimulus-induced changes were strongest near primary visual cortex and progressively decreased in a non-linear fashion as a function of distance, demonstrating that visual stimulation modulates vascular tone along the bulk of the PCA segment, and thus may have important implications for the understanding of functional hyperemia in healthy and diseased states.

CEREBROVASCULAR DYNAMICS IN RESPONSE TO NEURAL STIMULATION

The results indicate that global vasodilation of upstream parent arteries may be necessary to prevent blood stealby inactive regions nearby and further studies are needed to elucidate the physiological mechanisms underlying the propagation of vasodillation induced by neural stimulation.

Hemodynamic changes evoked by neuronal activity depend on the afferent input function, but are totally independent of the efferent function, so it is not possible to conclude whether the output level of activity of a region is increased based on brain maps that use blood-flow changes as markers.

Coupling and uncoupling of activity‐dependent increases of neuronal activity and blood flow in rat somatosensory cortex

This study showed that activity‐dependent increases in neuronal activity and CBF were linearly coupled under defined conditions, but neuronal activity was well developed before CBF started to increase, suggesting that vessels close to or at the brain surface are the first to react to neuronal activity.

Nitric oxide contributes to functional hyperemia in cerebellar cortex.

The results indicated that NO participates in the coupling of function activity to blood flow and support the hypothesis that NO is one of the mediators responsible for functional hyperemia in the central nervous system.

Importance of nitric oxide for local increases of blood flow in rat cerebellar cortex during electrical stimulation.

Findings are consistent with the idea that local synthesis of NO is involved in the transduction mechanism between neuronal activity and increased CBF, and that the NO-dependent flow rise was dependent on postsynaptic mechanisms.

We tested the hypothesis that conduction of vasomotor responses occurs in cannulated and isolated rat cerebral penetrating arterioles. Both at the site of stimulation (local) and 500-650 microns

The response of the pial circulation provides a well-characterized model for analysis of brain microcirculation, which presumably is linked to cerebral metabolism.

The findings provide additional support to the hypothesis that the increase in BFcrb evoked by PF stimulation is mediated, in part, by glutamate-induced activation of neuronal nitric oxide synthase.

Propagated Vasodilation in the Microcirculation of the Hamster Cheek Pouch

The technique of microionophoresis was used as a means of achieving relatively precise temporal and spatial application of drugs to single arterioles and the propagated response was relatively specific, being induced by acetylcholine but not by histamine, K+, H+, or eledoisin.
