The present study investigated whether this effect of ethanol is gender-related, and whether it involves hormonal factors. The effect of intragastric administration of ethanol or equal volume of water on baroreflex-mediated decreases in heart rate in response to increments in blood pressure evoked by phenylephrine were evaluated in conscious age-matched male and female Sprague-Dawley rats as… CONTINUE READING
