This structure lies within the cavernous sinus on each side of the pituitary. The presence of a carotid rete in many mammals has led to frequent speculations about its physiological function. The present study was designed to examine comparatively the responsiveness of goat retial and cerebral arteries to direct or indirect adrenergic stimulation. The contractile… CONTINUE READING
