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


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)
