After decades of investigation, the causes of essential hypertension remain obscure. The contribution of the nervous system has been excluded by some on the basis that baroreceptor mechanisms maintain blood pressure only over the short term. However, this point of view ignores one of the most powerful contributions of the brain in maintaining biological fitness-specifically, the ability to promote adaptation of behavioral and physiological responses to cope with new challenges and maintain this… CONTINUE READING
