Otolithic activation on visceral circulation in humans: effect of aging.

Abstract

Engagement of the otolith organs elicits differential activation of sympathetic nerve activity and vascular responses to muscle and skin in humans. Additionally, aging attenuates the otolith organ-mediated increases in muscle sympathetic nerve activity in older adults. In this study, we hypothesized that 1) the vestibulosympathetic reflex (VSR) would elicit… (More)
