Stimulation of cardiac sympathetic afferents evokes excitatory cardiovascular reflexes. However, the exact regions in the brain that integrate these reflexes have not been identified. Expression of c-Fos in the neurons provides a useful marker of the activated neurons. In the present study, we examined the response of c-Fos within the medulla of the cat to chemical stimulation of cardiac sympathetic afferents. After bilateral sinoaortic denervation and cervical vagotomy, we applied bradykinin… CONTINUE READING
