1. The location of arterial baroreceptors was studied in unanaesthetized Trachydosaurus rugosus by inflation of strategically placed perivascular cuffs. There was no evidence for baroreceptors at the site homologous with the carotid sinus of mammals or at the site homologous with the aortic arch baroreceptors of mammals and birds. The baroreceptors of T. rugosus probably lie in the truncus arteriosus. 2. When the sensitivity or gain of the cardiac response to changes in systemic arterial… CONTINUE READING
