Brainstem A2/C2 neurons are catecholamine (CA) neurons within the solitary tract nucleus (NTS) that influence many homeostatic functions, including cardiovascular reflexes, food intake, and stress. Because NTS is a major interface between sensory visceral afferents and the CNS, NTS CA neurons are ideally suited to coordinate complex responses by their projections to multiple brain regions. To test how NTS CA neurons process visceral afferent information carried by solitary tract (ST) afferents… CONTINUE READING
