Traditionally, arterial baroreflex control of vagal neural outflow is quantified by heart period responses to falling and/or rising arterial pressures (ms/mm Hg). However, it is arterial pressure-dependent stretch of barosensory vessels that determines afferent baroreceptor responses, which, in turn, generate appropriate efferent cardiac vagal outflow. Thus, mechanical transduction of pressure into barosensory vessel stretch and neural transduction of stretch into vagal outflow are key steps in… CONTINUE READING
